OS : Ubuntu Linux
Python Version : 2.6.4

I have some third party modules to be installed in my computer.
So, I want to add the module directory to python search list.

I used :

*>>> import sys*
*>>> sys.path.append('directory address')*
this could do my work but as soon as I close the terminal and reopen it, I
am not able to find the new directory I have just added.
I used the following code to check.

*>>> sys.path*
*how do I fix this problem ? *
