Added lines 1-9:
  • Problem:** Some program is not found (by a TextMate command or maybe `mate`) or possibly the wrong one is found
  • Solution:** Reset your Launch Services database:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill

If you have third party applications installed e.g. in `~/Applications` you should add a `-seed` argument like:

    -seed ~/Applications
