Re: Environment Vars?



use your favorite editor (vi - emacs - gedit - kate - doesn't matter)

edit file called java.sh and ultimately save it to /etc/profile.d/ and
make it owned by root:root 

The contents of the file are below, as I originally suggested...of
course, you would need to verify that this is the same version of java
that you are using and the files are located where they are stated to
be.

to apply it to current login shells...you would have to source it...

. /etc/profile.d/java.sh
or
source /etc/profile.d/java.sh

then
echo $JAVA_HOME

you should see the value for $JAVA_HOME or the 'ENV' you are asking
about.

and
echo $PATH

should show the java binary path

by virtue of the file being in /etc/profile.d  - any new 'logins' will
automtically source that file since all scripts in /etc/profile.d are
automatically loaded by virtue of the following code in /etc/profile

for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
    if [ -r "$i" ]; then
        . $i
    fi
done
