    There's an environnement variable called $PATH. So in your .bashrc or whatever, put this line:

    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/X11

    Most OS's also have a system profile in /etc that you can add it to and allow all users to have it in their path.

    Ouch! Partition Full... Holy cow now what do you do to fix that short of deleting stuff does LINUX allow for on the fly partition growth? Or are we stuck with reformatting and going clean copy?
