Many thanks for your replies, I've used ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist and it works. But because the "missing" program, convert, is a MacPort and hence located in /opt/local/bin/, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to set the path globally in /etc/launchd.conf during the installation of MacPorts. I suspect that similar problems should exist for all programs using imagemagick, and adding /opt/local/bin/ to the PATH systemwide should prevent all these problems in one go, shouldn't it?
