Do you understand how Unix environment variables work? You're using
the 'export' command, but that doesn't make any sort of global change
- it still applies only to things done in the same session. (Actually,
your change applies only to children of the shell where you do it...
but never mind that now.) You may do better by putting the export
command into your .bashrc - that would apply to all sessions created
by your user.
