PATH (noob) problem:)


I need to add same locations to the PATH variable. PATH=$PATH:/location works fine... till restart of course .
The question is, how to modify PATH, but permanently (for every system start).

Thanks for answers!

If you want to do it for all users, add it to /etc/profile.

If you want it for just yourself, add it to ~/.bash_profile.
