Hi Christian,

I am working on linux so whenever I click on eclipse.exe I want set system variable to function my code properly. So can I set system variable using eclipse.ini or any other way?

for export:

did you add the export to .bash_profile or .bashrc or at one of the 100 other places linux distos expect export statements
