hi welcome to LQ,

you can use the "export" command in linux to set the environment variable and you can list the environment variables using "env"

example:

Quote:
export MPLAYER_VERBOSE=9
this will set the environment variable MPLAYER_VERBOSE=9

also on issuing
Quote:
$env
you will see that variable.

also .. for csh selection

on menu

System->Administration-> Users and Groups
select the user and select the properties, there you can change the login shell

Actually, simply assigning a value eg

var=value

sets the env var in the CURRENT shell level. You only need the 'export' cmd if you want that value avail to sub-shells.
