 $PATH doesn't "stick"
Hey all,
        When I export a new $PATH using PATH=$PATH:/blah/blah/blah, and then
exit my console, then re-enter it, the path i recently added no longer is
there.  How do I make these new paths "stick"?

    There are two places where you can make changes to fix this. You can edit
the script /etc/profile and change the PATH there. This will change make the
changes effective for all users. The other alternative is to edit either the
files .bash_profile or .bash_login in your home directory and make the changes
there. This will make the changes effective for your id only.


There is no such thing as luck. 'Luck' is nothing but an absence of bad luck.

You'll need to put the PATH command (and export) into your shell profile (or
For a bash shell, this will be ~/.bash_profile
This file is run once each time you log in.
