"sentenv" lines - where to put them??

Me again!

I've just installed xalign to run on a Red Hat Linux 8 workstation but its not working and I need to add the line

"setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/X11R6/lib:/usr/local/EMBOSS/lib"

to _something_ to get it to work, according to the software manual.

Any idea where I need to put this - does it go into the cshrc file, or elsewhere?

Apologies if I sound stupid!

Thanks in advance

setenv is a cshell (csh) command. I assume you are using the standard shell which in Linux id bash. Bash is based on the kshell (ksh) so you need to use a different syntax. once logged in edit your .bashrc file (the . makes it a hidden file, so the gui tools wont see it) and enter the command like this (note no spaces around the = sign)

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/X11R6/lib:/usr/local/EMBOSS/lib"
