I'm using a clean install of 10.8. I wanted to add a couple of directories to my path. I tried adding them to /etc/paths using
sudo vim /etc/paths
Now when I open a terminal window I see this:
Last login: Wed Jan 23 15:42:57 on ttys001 /etc/paths: Permission denied pcp067952pcs:~ myLoginName$
This doesn't affect usability, however it is something I would prefer to fix.
Any ideas? -Austin
