Run a shell command installed with homebrew

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to create a simple workflow that saves to disk the image that is in the clipboard. I found pngpaste a library to do just that.


Now I created the workflow with a keyword trigger named pasteimage and an action "Run Script"



pngpaste $query


I get this error:


Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts/546DD210-2D7D-4CED-AA58-DAB4B0F6EE89:3: command not found: pngpaste

How can I run this command from Run Script?


Thank you

Applications do not use your shell's environment, and /usr/local/bin is not on $PATH. Use the full path to the program.


/usr/local/bin/pngpaste $query
