I am completely new to Linux and have no idea what to do. What I am trying to do is the following: I want to install Stata 16 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS 64-bit. I followed the stata installation guide and till now it worked out fine. Now I am asked to do this:
If you use bash , sh , or ksh , there is a line in your .profile (in your home directory) that looks like
Edit the file and add /usr/local/stata to the list:
My problem is: There is not line in my .profile that looks like the one above. My .profile says:
if running bash if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then
# include .bashrc if it exists if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then . "$HOME/.bashrc" fi fi
set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then
set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ] ; then
The only files in my home directory are .bash_history, .bash_logout, .bashrc, .profile and .sudo_as_admin_successful.
What do I have to do in order to include stata into the PATH? Could someone please be so incredibly kind and walk me through the steps?
Side problem: my keyboard has some errors. It cannot write any signs that need the AltGr-key anymore.
Thank you so much in advance!
