ok, I'm very new to Linux, so my question is very stupid.
I just installed a program called AVS in my redhat 9. All I want to do is to be able to write AVS from anywhere, using the terminal, and the program AVS will run, without having to tell the path averytime i run.
I know this has something to do with .bashrc files, but I'm having trouble finding it out.
of course, that is a better way, i don't know what i was thinking. thats what i do for all the programs that i write myself. if there is only one executable, this would be a better way to do it. if there were say, 10 different executables associated with the program, then you would want to add it to your path.
Well Iḿ a newbie as you can surely say... Iḿ trying to make an application called [ns-2] work
I wonder if I did the right thing, I created a directory called [Applications] in my HOME directory, extracted the tar right there in the Application folder and installed ns2 and then added the following lines to the very end of </etc/skel/.bashrc> file:
now, why doesnt it change the PATH Environment Variables permanently? and is it ok to add Applications folder to PATH instead of adding some subdirectories inside of Applications/ns2 to PATH Env. Var.?
