you simply have to open up your bashrc file with nano ~/.bashrc. Add what you need to, and thats about it in this case

A more 'correct' way to do it would be to use echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/home/zed/epdfree/bin' >> ~/.bashrc

You can also edit ~/.bashrc with the text editor of your choice if you don't want to use nano. Eg mousepad ~/.bashrc will open it up in mousepad. – stib Nov 18 '12 at 12:45
