The tiger schema must be added to the database search path for the functions to work properly.

I just started recently to use tiger dataset and postgres database and I have basic understanding of both. I would like to fix the following:

loader_generate_census_script: command not found

    It would be helpful to include more information about the steps you've taken to arrive at that error. – Chris W Oct 29 '15 at 21:13
  • @Chris not sure how to clarify this any better! are you familiar with how to install postgis & tiger dataset, postgis_tiger geocoder? – mehany Oct 30 '15 at 1:53
  • No, I'm not, which is part of what you could add to clarify - the steps you took to install them, or at least a link to the instructions you followed. The current answer states it should have been done automatically with proper installation. Knowing the steps you took may point out the issue/solution. – Chris W Oct 30 '15 at 19:55

Hmm well if you installed with

CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder;

It should do that automatically for you unless your user has an overriding search_path.

Anyrate standard way is to do:

ALTER DATABASE gisdb SET search_path="$user",public, tiger;

Note the settings don't take affect until you reconnect to the database.
