Re: PATH to java in X11
I'm running Lenny.
I've inserted the lines to .bashrc as you sad
but it only worked to the terminal
it had no effect in gnome (eg: using Alt+F2)
I inserted 'source /etc/profile' directly into
and it's working now!
I still want to know the correct way to do this.
if you someone knows, please send.

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.

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
