The path for everyone is set in /etc/profile. Your shell should reference
this when you start a new instance of it (i.e. log in, open a new xterm or
Konsole or whatever). (It's *actually* built from stuff in /etc/env.d so you
shouldn't modify /etc/profile directly...)

Try doing "source /etc/profile" in a shell, and that shell should pick up the
new path. Restarting X or rebooting should make the change global.
Most packages I've installed (I won't say "all" because I could be forgetting
something) modify /etc/profile if they need to change the system PATH. If
Limewire did not, you can add to your ~/.bashrc something like:
That definitely should be picked up every time you start a new terminal,
because it's in your local (user's) environment.
