    Problems with setenv


    I'm trying to install the Java Medira Framework on my FC5 system, but I'm having some problems. Here are the steps I need to follow:
    Code:
       1. Check the hardware and software requirements.
       2. Run the Installation program to extract JMF to a directory, such as /home/someuser/. A JMF-2.1.1e subdirectory will be created.
       3. Set your CLASSPATH path to reference the JMF directory. For example,
    
              setenv JMFHOME /home/someuser/JMF-2.1.1e
              setenv CLASSPATH $JMFHOME/lib/jmf.jar:.:${CLASSPATH} 
    
       4. Set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH (shared libraries path) to point to the JMF libraries. For example:
    
              setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $JMFHOME/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
    Whenever I try and execute to 'setenv' commands, I get:
    Code:
    [tristan@tristan Desktop]$ setenv JMFHOME /home/tristan/JMF-2.1.1e
    bash: setenv: command not found
    I've searched the drive for that command, but it's nowhere. What am I supposed to do?

    setenv is for csh.

    Use:
    export VAR=value
    for bash.

    So how exactly would I do it?

    Code:
    export JMFHOME = /home/someuser/JMF-2.1.1e
    export CLASSPATH  = $JMFHOME/lib/jmf.jar:.:${CLASSPATH}
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH = $JMFHOME/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}

    Almost.

    Code:
    export JMFHOME="/home/someuser/JMF-2.1.1e"
    export CLASSPATH="$JMFHOME/lib/jmf.jar:.:${CLASSPATH}"
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$JMFHOME/lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}"

    I have Suse and got the same problem. I found in a different forum that only csh have setenv and not bash. So doing $/bin/csh and then setenv was perfect!
