Bug Description

I am creating a oh-my-zsh plugin for zsh (

Therefore byobu is installed in a custom location and the path and BYOBU_PREFIX are setup when the plugin loads (which is after ~/.zprofile gets sourced).

I think the fix would be as simple as using $BYOBU_PREFIX to byobu-launch in install_launcher() (byobu-launcher-install).

Thanks for the bug report.

I'm not sure about this...

Is "byobu-launch" in your path? ie:
 $ which byobu-launch

If so, this should work fine (at least it does in bash):
 . byobu-launch

Can you confirm $(which byobu-launch)?

As said in the original report, the $PATH gets adjusted to include byobu after ~/.zprofile gets loaded.
Therefore byobu-launch is not in the path yet.

Apart from that, I would like to install the currently used version explicitly, so that byobu in my $HOME gets used, and not a system-wide installed one (if any).

Okay, then we need to rearrange how byobu-launcher-install works with zsh.

We absolutely need the $PATH to include the path to the byobu-* helper scripts.

Where would be the right place to put the . byobu-launch, in zsh world?
