/usr/local/kde/bin in PATH


i just installed a theme called "liquid" within kde3. i used:
make install
then there came a message saying:
"Add /usr/local/kde/bin to your PATH"
what does this message mean? where is this PATH?

thanks for any help!

It means that it is going to add /usr/local/kde/bin to your enviroment variable, PATH. If you run the command echo $PATH, it will print out your path. The path is where the shell, probably bash, will look for commands that you type in. If it finds them, it will execute them otherwise you will get an error.

if /usr/local/kde/bin isn't in ur path yet, u can do the following to put it in:
open ~/.bash_profile and add the following line to it
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/kde/bin
