How can I execute a command in the Current Working Directory without needing to type the full path. I have somehow lost this ability after installing KDE.
i.e.
/usr/local/netscape>netscape&
instead of
/usr/local/netscape>$PWD/netscape&

You need to check your path and make sure there is an entry with a singe period - for example /usr:/usr/local:.:/usr/local/bin - the period refers to the current directory, and linux doesn't include it by default. There is probably a path statement just for KDE apps - check there to see if the entry is there.
