comment $PATH is driving me nuts
more follow-up: it doesn't look like path_helper works at all in fish; it outputs either csh or bash syntax, both of which are incompatible. Instead, you can use ~/.config/fish/config.fish (the fish startup script) to cat /etc/paths.d/* and append them to $PATH. Hope that helps someone!

comment $PATH is driving me nuts
note, I can get it to work for fish by creating ~/.config/fish/config.fish with set PATH /usr/local/bin $PATH but I still have the issue of path_helper apparently not working like it should, and $PATH thus being incomplete. Also still have the issue of different $PATH for scripts, apps started from the GUI, etc.

comment $PATH is driving me nuts
Thanks Aaron - path_helper is an OSX-specific utility that supposedly sets $PATH at login by reading from /etc/paths and then /etc/paths.d/*. Anyway, I understand your suggestion should fix me for bash, but I actually want it to work in fish (and consistently across the system, if that's not too much to expect).
