Ubuntu – How to add /home/username/bin to $PATH?


Show how you can add /home/<yourusername>/bin to the $PATH variable. Use $HOME (or ~) to
represent your home directory.

Best Answer

To do that you need to type in your terminal:

export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"

This change is only temporary (it works only in the current session of the shell). To make it permanent, add the line to your .bashrc file located in your home directory.
