I want to permanently change my path, and I modified /etc/profile, but it didn't work. I am using Bash, can anyone help?

Thanks.

Did you try editing .bashrc in your home directory (and also .bash_profile)? The scripts in /etc/profile.d also affect the users PATH.

I use ~/.bashrc for path changes also.
