I have altered my ~/.profile file by adding the following:
I then log off and log in again, but the path is not added to the $PATH environment variable. I am checking in terminal:
echo $PATH /usr/share/android-sdk-linux/tools:/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_17/bin
I have even tried:
PATH=$PATH:/usr/share/android-sdk-linux/tools EXPORT PATH
No luck here either.

Adding to ~/.bachrc or /etc/environment:
works, but why not ~/.profile?
