Don't set the PATH this way. Specify the path list fully:
export PATH JAVA_HOME
Find out your current PATH before and add :$JAVA_HOME/bin to the end of it.
The first time I started and logged into gdm, it failed.
Then I went to /etc/ and changed environment permissions.
Ok, I managed to log in, but PATH doesn't have /opt/jdk1.5.0_12/bin
I can't run a program that uses java from the menu link
Only if a open gnome-terminal with any user and call the program, it works.
I know its possible to make a "workaround" starting everything thought
terminal, but it's horrible!
Or go to "/usr/bin" and "ln -s ..." everything in JAVA_HOME/bin
but that is not the point, I MUST know how to set PATH variable because its
ridiculous. I no windows user.
Both my Sarge and Etch installations have /etc/environment. You might
not be running Debian at all.
If it's obvious that /etc/environment is being ignored, you can place
this line in ~/.bashrc
Or you can just place the PATH and JAVA_HOME adjustments directly into
