    Default cd $path = No such file or directory

    hi

    just edited /etc/bash.bashrc where at the end added :

    Code:
    LIN=$LIN:/windows/D/LINUX/
    export LIN
    and I want have $LIN set as path to /windows/D/LINUX/ but I each time I type $LIN getting that error
    Code:
    andrzej:/etc # cd $LIN
    bash: cd: :/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX/:/windows/D/LINUX/:/windows/D/LINUX: No such file or directory
    I think its set because after typing env
    can find these:
    Code:
    LIN=:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX/:/windows/D/LINUX/:/windows/D/LINUX
    so what am I missing to use that $LIN permanently ?

    Remove $LIN:

    it should be:

    Code:
    LIN=/windows/D/LINUX/
    export LIN

    hi,

    removed $ and : , being root or user still getting the same message :

    Code:
    andre@andrzej:/etc> cd $LIN
    bash: cd: LIN/windows/D/LINUX/: No such file or directory

    No, that was not at all what VampirD wrote. Run, exactly, the two
    commands he posted for you.

    The reason he is correct is that your solution is concatenating what LIN
    was before with what you are adding now (/windows/D/LINUX/) which means
    you end up with a path, at first, of /windows/D/LINUX and the next time
    you do it you end up with /windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX and the next
    time you end up with /windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX:/windows/D/LINUX
    and so on and so forth. Stop concatenating is basically what VampirD is
    telling you which means every time you simply set it, whether already
    set or not, to /windows/D/LINUX . Thankfully Linux can also consolidate
    the two lines into one for simplicity

    export LIN=/windows/D/LINUX

    Good luck.

    Find where you have your original lines in a script as you set them up
    (~/.bashrc, ~/.profile, /etc/bash.bashrc, /etc/profile.d/*, or something
    similar) and fix things there too. Nothing is permanent unless it is
    written to a file so you must find the file where you put the broken
    commands and fix them.

    Good luck.
