When I attempt to run Mercurial diff from within Textmate, I get an error "Couldn't find hg."

hg works from the command line and is in my path.

Any suggestions?

What is shown when you issue echo $PATH? –  badp Apr 15 '10 at 14:41

I updated Textmate PATH shell variable to include /usr/local/bin/ and all is well.

Forget about the TM_HG variable and simply add /usr/local/bin/ to the PATH variable in the Textmate-Preferences.

For example my PATH looks like: /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin/
