The %PATH% to the e-mail room
This is my first post. I am new to computers and to linux. The troubles I've been experiencing with computers seem to be so obvious to most people that when I do a search or post (if I can) I usually get Sorry, there were no matches...
So here goes:
What is this "environment variable" thing? What does it have to do with my path? What is my path? What is the difference between a desktop environ and one that allows your computer to find a newly installed program?
Why is it so hard to post on a listing? I have wrote the same question 6 times to 6 different (nachines I'd guess!) people all at the same address. I was having trouble with vim, and was trying to post @ vim.org. I finnally gave up but they still fill my junk folders up.
I have just joined a linux users group, so maybe next month I'll be able to use a mail listing, newsreader, or whatever the particular expert I talk to decides to call it.
