Help with line in terminal while trying to install
 
First and foremost let me say that I am a complete newb in linux. I just installed ubuntu about 4 days ago so I may not understand everything at first.

For the most part I have been able to find answers to things online without any problems. And I am in awe at how this community openly helps each other, its completely awesome.

Im trying to install epsxe and I have been following this how-to http://terror.snm-hgkz.ch/gaming/linux/epsxe_howto/
I have made it to step 5.10 with little problems. My question is what does it mean in this line "Don't forget to set the path after export EPSXE to the actual location of your ePSXe directory"? Im not really sure what to do there. I moved the start_epsxe.sh to /usr/local/bin/ like it told me to.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

In your .profile login script, you want a line like "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin" so the bash shell will look in /usr/local/bin as well to find commands. I'm not installing this program so I don't know if there is another directory you need to add to the path or if the startup script (start_epsxe.sh) will add this. You can enter "echo $PATH" to check which directories are in your PATH.

My best guess is that the "start_epsxe.sh" has a PATH=$PATH:<exsxe_dir> command, but you may need to edit it so that the path it adds is correct. For example, is there an /usr/local/games/exsxe/ or /usr/local/games/exsxe/bin directory?

Should that be:
"export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin"

Thanks, I wrote that too fast (while listening to podcasts and preparing Duck soup), and now corrected that post.

Yeah, there is an /usr/local/games/epsxe/ directory that I created.
