Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this. If so please redirect me. 

I am running emacs on MacOSX, installed from a DMG file. 

It works great, but it is not aware of my path, so I can't execute commands like 'git' or 'svn' etc. 

How can I configure it to be aware of my path. I'm using the global path variable file /etc/profile. 

The Finder on the Mac (that starts emacs) doesn't look at /etc/profile, etc.  For a particular user, it does look at ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist

Its a "property list" thing that is normal for Mac settings.  You can find it documented more on Mac forums and those kinds of places.


If you are talking about shells started within emacs, thats a different matter.
