view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Guys, I want to try to add a path to my .bash_profile which originates from my root directory. How do I do that? Path I want to add: /root/opt/local/bowtie/ Current .bash_profile code: Code: # .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then         . ~/.bashrc fi # User specific environment and startup programs PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin export PATH if [ ! -f $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa ] ; then         /opt/bin/pssc-config-sshkeys fi I added on this code for the path at the end: Code: # Addition of bowtie path PATH=$PATH:/opt/loca (HowTos)
