noob here. I want to add a folder to PATH only under my account. Tried to search for answers for quite a while. Ending up get methods like creating .profile .bash_profile under my home directory(~), and add a line with new path information in them. Nothing worked so far. I am using X2Go client on a windows desktop to log in terminal of ubuntu server. Not sure if this process does not evaluate '.profile' or '.bash_profile'? The PATH I get is always the ones defined in /etc/environment(which i cannot modify). If that is the case, how can I add PATH of my own somewhere, which will be available to myself only when I log in from X2Go?
Thanks a lot for any input.
