I am following this post to install vanilla texLive and don't know what to do with the following instructions:

Create the following PATHs in your manpath, infopath and PATH for finding your new installation in TeXLive 2017

export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH
export INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/doc/info export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/doc/man

Would you help me? I don't know where to put those lines.


Those go in your .bashrc. It's located in your home directory (example /home/hernan/.bashrc).

Anything added to .bashrc will load each time a new bash shell is loaded, so you will just need to run bash again, or just open a new terminal window.
