making shell "export" variable permanent forever: user/system


hi all,

if you are running opensuse 10.3 and opera or netbeans, then u know they don't work without this option:

export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

because java attempts to sloppy lock...


does anybody know a way so that this option is applied to me as a user, and/or to the entire desktop enviornment (preferably including all terminals i open.)

Thanks everybody.

Put the export command in your ~/.bash_profile (or .bashrc, I don't know which SuSE uses). Every time you log in, it will export it.

if you want to change it for all users, edit: /etc/bash.bashrc
(as root)
