How to modify my .bashrc in general to accomodate running binaries (e.g. SCHEME)?

# For Java
export JAVA_HOME=/home/alex/Java/jdk1.5.0_04
export PATH=$PATH:/home/alex/Java/jdk1.5.0_04/jdk1.5.0_04/bin

export SCHEME_HOME=/home/alex/plt
export PATH=$PATH:/home/alex/plt/bin
I know the Java home and path setup has been configured properly because Java works.

But, my Scheme home and path setup does not work.

In general how do I change the .bashrc to accomodate running binaries from anywhere?

I installed SCHEME through a *.sh.

As long as the binary is in your path it should work. Did you reload the shell config file?

Try this:

source /home/alex/.bashrc
