Debian :: Setting PATH Environment Variable

May 19, 2015

I have been trying to change my PATH environment variable to no avail. I am using Jessie i386 with MATE. Using my .bashrc file works but not well because with subshells the modifications get repeated. I want the change to occur on login.

I tried modifying ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile /etc/profile and /etc/environment and one or two others but in no case did my change get picked up even after logging out and in again and even after rebooting. I searched the Internet and found each of the above places to make the change but they don't seem to work with Jessie.

Where do I make the necessary change?

Debian :: Cannot Add Environment Variable

Apr 27, 2015

I'm trying to add 2 new environment variables (Debian . I have created a "/etc/profile.d/" file and in it I have added these lines (and just for the record, I've also tried adding those line to the profile file with the same results as explained below).

Code: Select allexport XAPPLRESDIR=/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v83/X11/app-defaults

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v83/runtime/glnxa64:/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v83/bin/glnxa64:/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v83/sys/os/glnxa64:/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v85/runtime/glnxa64:/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v85/bin/glnxa64:/usr/local/MATLAB/MATLAB_Compiler_Runtime/v85/sys/os/glnxa64

The first variable "XAPPLRESDIR" is added just fine (I check by doing echo $XAPPLRESDIR). The second variable is not added. Here's what I discovered though, if I change the variable name to LD_LIBRARY_PATK (I change the word "path" into something else) then it works just fine... So how am I supposed to add this variable? I need it to be named just that...

Debian :: Alter The User's Environment Path?

Feb 2, 2011

what the correct way is to add '/sbin' to my users environment path which is not present when I run the command 'env'?


carlos@db1:~$ env
SSH_CLIENT= 35495 22


I would like to add /sbin to all future user's I create with 'useradd' and including my already existing user account above. Can someone tell me the correct way in Debian to change my current user environment to have /sbin in their path as well as how to add this for all future users? I looked at /etc/profiile and there are two lines that look relivant:


if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then


I'm guessing the 2nd PATH line is for users and the 1st one is for root, right?
