Failed to change $ PATH on Mac OS X Yosemite
I just want to start by developing Android Apps on my new Mac. So I have to add platform-tools and tools from Eclipsebundle to my $ PATH.
The first thing I did was add these two folders to my local admin account, which did a great job with the command:
echo 'export PATH=/Users/myname/Desktop/adtbundle/sdk/platform-tools:"$PATH"' >> ~/.profile echo 'export PATH=/Users/myname/Desktop/adtbundle/sdk/tools:"$PATH"' >> ~/.profile
So, I added MacMini to our domain and logged into my account, which is saved in our active directory.
I opened terminal again and typed two commands, but after that, while I want to check my new $ PATH (
), my $ PATH hasn't changed. It only contains standard folders.
I looked for another How-To for editing $ PATH and tried it like this:
cd nano .bash_profile
in my .bash_profile i added:
export PATH="/Users/myname/Desktop/adtbundle/sdk/platform-tools:$PATH" export PATH="/Users/myname/Desktop/adtbundle/sdk/tools:$PATH"
saved everything with
control + o
confirmed name by pressing
and then exit nano by pressing
control + x
tried checking my new $ PATH -> it hasn't changed and my bash_profile is empty again - can someone tell me what I did wrong?
