You can add the path to the Harmony binary files to the $PATH environment variable. This will allow you to run Harmony and its applications and utilities from a terminal by typing the name of the executable files, without having to type their full path.
- Double-click on Configuration Assistant.
- In the Welcome screen, check the Register console applications in the path option and uncheck all other options.
- Click on Continue.
If you only want to add the Harmony binaries to the $PATH variable for your own user, select Register Path for my user only. If you want the Harmony binaries to be in the $PATH variable regardless of who is logged in, select Register Path for all users.NOTE: You need an account with administrator privileges to register the path for all users.
Click on Create.
If you selected Register Path for all users, you will be prompted to enter an administrator's username and password to authorize the change.
To verify that the change has been applied, open a new Terminal window and type the following command:
$ echo $PATH
The path to the Harmony bin folder should be included in the output, separated by other paths with a colon.
