Unhappy SuSE PATH value with duplicate entry


Hello,
as I need to modify my PATH value adding a new entry..

PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/bin

..I've mofified the /etc/profile file adding the line above at the bottom of it.
Very strange! ..when I'm logged in the system with also different userIDs and checked the new PATH value I saw my entry duplicate!!!

I tried with other files mofidy but nothing good!!

..if I'm logged in withot KDE, I mean with the CTRL+ALT+F1 session, there the PATH as the correct value!!
Is the KDE that is "doing the duplicate" !!!

Does anobody knows how can I circumnavigate that "problem"?
May be I have to write a little scripting language entry in my /etc/profile? ..cause I'm not able to develop script programs I haven't tried in that way!
Many Thanks in advance!
Paolo.

Do Not add it to the /etc/profile file, but instead add it to /etc/bashrc.local (which probably does not exist). That is where you should put any modifications. /etc/profile is used whenever there is a login bash shell. For KDE, it is probably that kdm and kde are running a login bash shell, so the effect is duplicated. A login shell must be the first shell on any terminal (tty1 -> CTRL+ALT+F1 ... tty7 -> CTRL+ALT+F7 ...)

Thank You MICAHGEEK,
I've tried with your suggestion creating the /etc/profile.local file that doesn't exist before..

PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/bin

..my PATH was not re-configured, it doesn't consider that type of configuration. Do You have some other ideas?
Best Regards,
PAOLO.

Did you edit the bashrc.local file? The profile.local file is the same as the nono-local file, but just serves to seperate user changes from system ones. Try using the bashrc.local file first.

PS It doesn't matter if there is a duplicate entry, it will still work.

Thumbs up Problem SOLUTION !!!



With all files modification I was not able to have my path's entry duplicated..
..analizing the /etc/profile steps I found the solution!

In the section " # Make path more comfortable " just write the entry you wanna add in the " cycle FOR "

IT WORKS lovely WELL!!!
