Linux: How To Add To Path

We are going to assume that you are using the BASH shell.

Show your current path like this:


echo $PATH

Add a directory to your existing path like this:


export PATH=$PATH:/home/test

If you want your path to stay set after you exit your current shell you should add it to your .bashrc file like this.

vi ~/.bashrc
export PATH=$PATH:/home/test
