Summary0008633: Autopsy error with ENV

Running autopsy in Kali generates the following error:
Insecure directory in $ENV{PATH} while running with -T switch at /usr/bin/autopsy line 307.

The fix is to add a line that reads $ENV{PATH} = '/usr/bin/:/usr/sbin/' ahead of line 307.

I am having the exact same issue. I am unable to start autopsy

Tried OPs work around and can confirm it works

Machine Specs:
PRETTY_NAME="Kali GNU/Linux Rolling"
NAME="Kali GNU/Linux"

Autopsy version 2.24-6

I've tried uninstalling and re-installing from both the Kali package manager and from TSK website and followed all of the instructions in the READ ME

I feel like I've tried pretty much everything I've found in various places and even fiddled around with making temp changes to my $PATH

Also in the following places:
Insecure directory in $ENV{PATH} while running with -T switch at /usr/share/autopsy/lib/ line 50.
Insecure directory in $ENV{PATH} while running with -T switch at line 88.

Adding in the $ENV{PATJ} lines fixes the individual instances but isn't a holistic fix. Haven't had a chance to find what's wrong with the overall Autopsy install or with Perl

@kilroyinco This seems to be an issue with Debian itself. Someone who was trying to run autopsy shared they were having the same issue on Debian.

I have just uploaded autopsy version 2.24-6kali1 in kali to fix this issue.
It will available soon.
