What is the best way to set environment variables for an extension ?
Is there an official way ?
I have some ideas:
1. Modify ~/.ashrc with "tce.installed/script"
2. Modify ~/.profile with "tce.installed/script"
3. Add a file into directory /etc/profile.d
(Must be named as "*.sh", see http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,5086.msg27095.html
If one choose to modify "~/.ashrc:~/.profile" with "tce.installed/script"
I can come up 2 ways:
-- echo lines to the files: echo export FOO=\"Hello World\" >> ~/.ashrc
-- create config files and source it: echo source /path/to/config/files >> ~/.ashrc
Generally speaking, the benefit of modifying "~/.ashrc:~/.profile" is that the user can use it right away.
However, users might have change their setting, it's not easy to avoid messing up these settings.
On the other hand, by adding a file into directory /etc/profile.d,
the modification would be system wide, but requires a user to log out and log back in.
Any ideas ?
