I3WM path

Running i3wm and found that with rofi it would not see executables I put in $HOME/bin directory.

The problem is that the $PATH variable is set correctly for command line items but not within the GUI/WM. Googled solutions and people said to put things under /usr/local/bin, etc.

I want personal sripts and crap under $HOME/bin.

To see the $PATH that i3 recognizes:

$ cat /proc/$(pidof i3)/environ | tr '\0' '\n' | grep '^PATH'

Notice no /home/$USERNAME/bin in the PATH

I tried putting the export statement into the .xsession file and other iterations of the file with no luck.

Solution was to add line to ~/.profile file

$ echo 'export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.profile

Log out and back in again and things should be working now.
