Compare what you get when you run 'echo $PATH' in a terminal to what you 
get when you run it in LiveCode using shell(). Make sure the directory 
that contains whatever executable you might be running is installed in 
or linked in a directory that is in the $PATH returned by LiveCode's 
shell function. It would appear that it isn't in this case. You can 
further test by running 'which [command]' in a terminal and see if it's 
located in one of the directories that 'put shell("echo $PATH")' 
returns. It's not about which shell (executable), it's about the env and 
the $PATH.

Good luck!
