Does this explain it clearly? Yes. :) Basically we are discussing your use of the word "required" for ncmprhnsbl's solution to the update-flash function on 3.2.2. Technically it is not "required" so long as users remember/know to use a different form of the su command. Or edit the path as Blaze has...

Actually this shouldn't require a fix. /opt/porteus-scripts should be a part of your $PATH variable.

Actually this shouldn't require a fix. /opt/porteus-scripts should be a part of your $PATH variable. It is in the 3.2.2's guest mode but not root mode. guest@porteus:~$ echo $PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts:/usr/lib64/java/bin:/usr/lib64/qt/bin:/usr/lib64/java/bin:...
