Default KDE 3.4 Alpha help

Hi,

Can someone help me with this part of the installation?
I have compiled everything did an make install completely like in the readme.
Readme:http://developer.kde.org/build/konst...nstable/README

The only thing i have trouble with is this part:
After installation
==================
After installation you have to set some variables allowing your system to find
KDE binaries and libraries and KDE to allow to find its own files, for Bash:

export QTDIR=~/kde3.4-alpha1
export KDEDIR=~/kde3.4-alpha1
export KDEDIRS=~/kde3.4-alpha1

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/kde3.4-alpha1/lib
export PATH=~/kde3.4-alpha1/bin:$PATH

Setting KDEHOME too, e.g. "export KDEHOME=~/.kdetest", will tell KDE to save
your settings to this directory and leave default ~/.kde directory unaffected.

The complete KDE desktop is started with "startkde", most distributions start
it if you set it to the WINDOWMANAGER variable in your shell initializations.

Where do i have to add these lines?
I am working on a SuSE 9.1 64-bit, i compiled it in 64bit mode.
I wanna know in what file do i have to add the lines:
export QTDIR=~/kde3.4-alpha1
export KDEDIR=~/kde3.4-alpha1
export KDEDIRS=~/kde3.4-alpha1

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/kde3.4-alpha1/lib
export PATH=~/kde3.4-alpha1/bin:$PATH
And how do i set it in the windowmanager ?

Thanks alot.

Hrm, that's a tough one. If bash is being used, it may check these for ...

interactive login shells: /etc/profile (global) ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile ~/.bash_login

non-login interactive shells: /etc/bash.bashrc (global) ~/.bashrc

When it's invoked as "/bin/sh" by scripts, it starts in POSIX mode ... and doesn't attempt to read any startup files. At least, I don't think that it does; the man page is somewhat ambiguous on this matter.

That's how I understand it from reading "man bash", anyways. You'll probably have to try a few different files.

Why is this off topic?
This is a Linux Forum. (Operating Systems Forums > NVIDIA Linux Forum)
It doesn't say nVidia Hardware Only Forum....

So next time if you dont have anything else to post then please dont post.
Troll.
