I first encountered this problem when I tried to use SCP to another computer over LAN, and get
zsh:1: command not found: scp
Now before anyone asks: yes I have SSH installed.
I can use ssh to log into the other computer just fine.
The problem is SCP, and
ssh [user@]hostname [command] both result in
zsh:1: command not found: [command].
I tried using SCP with localhost
systemctl start sshd.service scp /home/user/asdf.log firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/user/test/asdf.log ... zsh:1: command not found: scp
And then sending a command:
ssh email@example.com ls ... zsh:1: command not found: ls
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org works as expected.
I used the
-v switch, and the info looked normal.
I tried switching to Bash instead of ZSH; same error.
Finally, I tried root login, and that worked
ssh email@example.com ls ... Desktop Documents Music ...
#/etc/ssh/sshd_config PermitRootLogin yes # this is bad; for testing only AuthorizedKeysFile .ssh/authorized_keys ChallengeResponseAuthentication no UsePAM yes PrintMotd no #pam does that Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server
Using Arch Linux with openssh 7.9p1
It looks like the environment isn't getting set (not even PATH)
for SCP and single command SSH. But, for root login it is getting set properly.
Any ideas about this?
It's something with my user shell config.
I added a new, blank user account, and using SCP into that worked fine.
