For the past several years, I have been running a Mac as my primary development machine. Recently, I’ve been doing some development on a Ubuntu virtual machine. As per usual with my bouncing back and forth between things, I forgot how to add a directory to my PATH in a Linux Distro. On my Mac, I’m used to having a .bash_login, but I didn’t have that option in this case.
Here’s what I did to add a directory to my PATH in Ubuntu 14.04
sudo vi /etc/environment
Just add your directory to the end of the PATH value, restart your machine and you’re good to go!
