Most settings in Athena are controlled by your dotfiles, files located in your home directory that begin with a "
.". They're hidden by default; to see them, type
ls -a. By adding the following to your
~/.environment file, you can avoid typing additional commands at startup.
- From your home directory, type
emacs .environmentto edit your
.environmentfile using Emacs (or use favorite text editor).
- Add the following lines:
- Type Ctrl-X Ctrl-S, Ctrl-X Ctrl-C to save and close (if using Emacs).
(If you don't have a
.environment file in your home directory, the steps above will create one for you.)
