Hi, I am using GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-apple-darwin9.7.0, NS
apple-appkit-949.46) on OS X 10.5.8.

When I launch emacs from the terminal with

$ /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs &

I can use ispell as expected.

However, if I launch emacs by clicking on its icon - which presumably points
to the same binary file -
I get the following error:

apply: Searching for program: No such file or directory, ispell

Ispell is on my load path
("/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/lisp/textmodes/"); even when I
do one of the following I get the same error:

(load "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/lisp/textmodes/ispell")
(add-to-list 'load-path
"/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/lisp/textmodes")

The fact that it works if I launch the same application with the same .emacs
file from the terminal (no -Q option necessary) leads me to believe that the
conflict is not in any of my settings.

Thanks much!
-Stephen

This results from PATH being different when starting from icon. You can fix it by one of several means. Please refer to the manual or search on the net about Emacs Mac OS X, and path.

Emacs does none of this by default to avoid unexpected differences from other OS X applications, which follow the same rules. If you do not like this behavior, the Aquamacs distribution does set PATH I believe.
