Not really - the rules are:

1. If the path to coot is defined in Preferences, it uses that;
2. Otherwise, if "coot" is a valid command in the shell's search path, use that;
3. Finally, look for various common places where Coot might be
expected (this is usually only necessary on Mac) for a "coot"

I may have some idea what is breaking here; will check again in a few
hours (first I need coffee).  Peter: what is the terminal output when
you click the Coot icon?
