I use Ubuntu 14.10 with bash shell.
I downloaded a
gradle distribution and moved it to a new directory.
I want to permanently set a environment variable to point to the
bin sub-directory of the gradle folder.
I have edited
~./profile according to recommendations to include the path to the gradle's running script. Yet when I type
gradle (which is the name of the script in the bin folder) it does not run.
Logged out, rebooted and everything but still it does not work.
Is there something I am missing here?
added this line on the end of
~/.profilefile's contents are these:
# ~/.profile: executed by the command interpreter for login shells. # This file is not read by bash(1), if ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login # exists. # see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files for examples. # the files are located in the bash-doc package. # the default umask is set in /etc/profile; for setting the umask # for ssh logins, install and configure the libpam-umask package. #umask 022 # 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 PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/sanctus/Documents/Development/gradle-2.2/bin" fi gradle="$HOME/sanctus/Documents/Development/gradle-2.2/bin" export gradle
