[Mingw-users] Missing Windows entries in MSYS' $PATH?




MSYS appears to lack many entries in its $PATH, compared to my Windows user %PATH%.

MSYS:

$ echo "$PATH"
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/opt/bin:/c/Windows/System32:/c/Windows:/c/Windows/System32/Wbem:/c/Windows/System32/WindowsPowerShell/v1.0/:/usr/bin/site_perl:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl

Compared to Command Prompt:

> echo %PATH%
C:\Program Files\ConEmu\ConEmu\Scripts;C:\Program Files\ConEmu;C:\Program Files\ConEmu\ConEmu;C:\Program Files (x86)\Razer Chroma SDK\bin;C:\Program Files\Razer Chroma SDK\bin;C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Windows Performance Toolkit\;C:\Go\bin;C:\Users\a_pen\go\bin;C:\Ruby24-x64\bin;C:\Users\a_pen\.cargo\bin;C:\Users\a_pen\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;C:\Users\a_pen\AppData\Local\atom\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin\file-5.03-bin\bin;C:\Users\a_pen\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36-32;C:\Users\a_pen\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36-32\Scripts;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;C:\Program Files\Git\bin

MSYS bash configuration:

https://github.com/mcandre/dotfiles/blob/06abd486b51c7b4ae56bd530a0afa6f4257401be/.bash_profile
https://github.com/mcandre/dotfiles/blob/06abd486b51c7b4ae56bd530a0afa6f4257401be/.bashrc

Any ideas for correcting MSYS PATH to include the full Windows user PATH?

Other shells feature the correct full PATH, including cmd, PowerShell, Git bash, and bash on Ubuntu on Windows.
