running into a weird issue that I have absolutely no idea how to troubleshoot (and didn't find anything useful on google) so figured I could ask for some guidance.

I have colorls installed and working great in gnome-terminal but I'm wanting to switch to termite and whenever I try to invoke it it just complains that it doesn't exist. Same happens with urxvt

I'm using ZSH as shell and the error message I'm getting is just: zsh: command not found: colorls but in gnome using the same shell it works perfectly.

    It sounds like you have a different PATH in the respective emulators - is one running a login shell and the other a non-login shell for example? – steeldriver Mar 27 '18 at 1:57
  • Yes. That's actually it. I had completely forgotten that I set gnome-terminal to behave as a login-shell as it showed up as a step to install rvm (I think it was that one). Sorry for the dumb question >.>. – Laucien Mar 27 '18 at 2:17
  • @steeldriver Please write an answer. – dessert Mar 28 '18 at 22:10
