Just as the title indicates my PATH variable resets after every reboot. I read that I have to edit my bashrc file's PATH variable, but I don't have anything there that suggests anything related to the PATH variable.
if you want to update the PATH only for your user, just edit your local bashrc
if you want to update the global PATH
gksudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc
If it isn't in your ~/.bashrc add it on a new line.
Environment variable settings that should affect just a particular user (rather than the system as a whole) should be set into:
~/.pam_environment # This file is specifically meant for setting a user's environment.
It is not a script file, but rather consists of assignment expressions, one per line.
Note: Using .pam_environment requires a re-login in order to initialize the variables. Restarting just the terminal is not sufficient to be able to use the variables.
