Apologies, don't know what happened, I intended it to go to the list. I
know it's shell dependent. I did ". ~/.bashrc" followed by "echo
$CLASSPATH" in the same shell and it just returned the prompt. Only
after the reboot did it report the CLASSPATH and as expected on all tabs
in konsole.
I shall watch out for this in future in case the tools are not working
properly - e.g:- a couple of us have had a similar problem with a USB
device in Ubuntu and Kubuntu 10.04 that was only cured by a reboot -
very unusual as udevadm indicated everything was OK.

Perhaps you need the quotes like you do with the JAVA_HOME variable


I expected "source ~/.bashrc" to have set it up on the fly, but I had to
do a reboot for it to take effect - that's very odd in the Linux/Unix

It works only in the shell in which you sourced the .bashrc. And all
processes (including terminals and shells) that inherit from that shell.

One other thing I noticed, there is no file, perhaps not
needed in the current versions of java?

Did you check the -devel package? The -devel package is the JDK, the
other is only the JRE. AFAIR the is only part of the JDK,
isn't it?
