I am quite new in this service, so don't know what have
been going on here.
We are trying to set up Linux on our systems.
This might be a trivial question but I wonder can anybody
let me know how to define a new environment variable and
where to put it.



1. cannot setup environment variables

I try to set some environment variables by using

setenv MY_VARIABLE_HERE  /usr/lib/my_variable_directory

Thank you.
