Re: Importing mencoder into a bash script

mencoder: command not found
I'm wondering if I need to explicitly set my path in the script file in
order to call this function.
Uhm, mencoder, when installed, lives in /usr/bin/mencoder. Perhaps
you have not installed it?
dpkg -l mencoder
sudo apt-get install mencoder
No - it is definitely installed - I've used it on the cli plenty of
times. I am interested in finding out how I am to call it from within a
bash script, because simply putting mencoder <options> <file> in the
bash script isn't working.
I'm not a programmer, so I can guarantee that this is a case of PEBCAK,
but I am not clear on how to resolve it.
