On the Scrivener forum a person told me this (in the bold type below), but I'm not finding .bashrc or .profile in my home directory. Since this person wasn't familiar with Mint LMDE I thought I'd ask for help here. How do I do this? Thanks in advance for your help.
OK...you need to edit your PATH variable. I'd consult your distro's documentation, but usually it's in .bashrc or .profile in your home directory. (Or whatever shell's rc that you're using.) Don't forget to log out/log back in after appending /usr/share/bin to it. (Or you can use source.) If there's nothing else in either file, make sure you put the current path definitions in it, otherwise you won't get access to them. (Generally defaults to whatever's in your home directory, then whatever's defined in the system.)
Do I just "make" a .bashrc file and save it in my home directory? And if so, then what do I type in that file? I feel like a complete idiot not knowing this basic stuff. I just want to get this software package to work. If I can get it to work, then I'm free from Windows. This is the only software package that's a "deal breaker" for going to Linux.
I'm finally 100% Windows-free and loving it.
