I am getting this error in Geany Editor while executing a simple program:

Can't Execvp " No such File or Directory " 

I want to set xterm as Geany Terminal Emulator. But I think I've accidentally screwed up my shell path.

Can Anybody Provide me with the default shell path of Geany.


In order to get shell path corrected, go to Edit > Preferences > Terminal > Shell: and set that to whatever shell you use. For example /bin/bash.

By default the shell path is /bin/bash.
