It is expected that shell environment variables won't be available in GUI apps launched via
But until Mavericks - I could launch an app via Command line such as:
open -a IntelliJ\ IDEA\ 11
And Intellij will inherit the environment variables defined in shell (In my case zsh). This does not seem to work properly anymore. I have seen similar problem, when I launch
Emacs.app from command line.
BTW, I know I can use Setting the system-wide PATH environment variable in Mavericks for setting system wide environment variables, but I don't want system wide environment variables. I want GUI app to inherit variables that were defined at the point, the app was launched from command line.
