Hya,

Your description is not detail, so I only can guess what you want.

Usually, system wide setting of path is set by some file under /etc. Depending on the shell (bash tcsh..) they are different. read online manual of bash or tcsh look for startup as a keyword. Follow the instruction.

Happy Penguins!

I think you'll have to edit /etc/profile for system wide environment variables.

That file is not always system wide, although it is very often. I was trapped into this pitfall a while ago.

Be careful.

Happy Penguins!
