    That is one way, but a (perhaps) beter way would be to modify
    PATH in individual user's .profile.

    The MANPATH environment variable tells the man command where
    to search for man pages.

    You'll need to recompile those broken apps using the -R flag.
    Using LD_RUN_PATH is not recommended practise, unless you have
    no other alternative.

    As a rule, I wouldn't touch the system supplied defaults.
    Instead, put them in individual user's .profile or .kshrc
    (or other file depending on what shell they use).

    Default need general help with setting paths & man paths for apps

    Hello, basically what I know so far (which is limited ) is that I put in the
    path to installed apps in my path through editing the /etc/default/login
    script.

    also when i installed gcc I added the installed app to my path, but after
    compiling there was a share folder and a man folder, I take it the man
    folder consists of the man pages so how do I add them to my path as in the
    man path also when installing apps I noticed some references to enviroment
    variables such as LD_LIBRARY_PATH.... How do I set these variables to there
    corresponding applications (permanantly).

    Any advice on the enviroment variables or paths and what they link to and
    when(e.g I have been putting the .bin directorys in my path in mt
    /etc/default/login script) whould be appreciated.

    regards
    David
