I tried this and it didn't seem to change anything. I did
chmod -R +x /usr/bin
for each directory in my path as shown by "echo $PATH" (changing the
directory name in the above statement, of course). In a few cases I didn't
have premission to do that, so I did it as root instead. I don't have any
paths listed in .bashrc and I checked the ones in .bash_profile as above.
What else could be going wrong?
