You'll want to add some lines to your ~/.bash_profile if you need the path for just yourself. Or, to make the change global, create a file in /etc/profile.d/ with an arbitrary filename ending in .sh. For example:

Whichever way you choose you'll want to add the following to the file:

export PATH

I don't know if I understood the question correctly...

Are you looking for the 'locate' command? It's provided by the 'mlocate' package and should be already installed on your system. just try it:

$ locate nano

But remember that you have to set up the related database first (by root):

# updatedb

You shouldn't edit the global system files directly, instead you can apply you own custom global settings in a file ending in .sh within the /etc/profile.d/ directory. The system files look at this directory and run the commands inside any files ending in .sh.
