Changing PATH permanently
I have some Python scripts in $HOME/sandbox which I want to make permanently executable for everyone, but at least for me (user 'ulrich') if the former is not possible.
I have done PATH=$PATH:/home/ulrich/sandbox and it works, only until I change directories (why is that?) or until I log out and log back in. I want this to work permanently.
I use Debian Lenny and I have checked and I don't have .bash_profile or .bashrc in my home directory. What am I supposed to do. Also what is the difference between export and just plain PATH?
I just went to create a .bashrc since there wasn't one and added PATH=$PATH:/home/ulrich/sandbox and logged in again and it's working.
