Re: Change .emacs directory in Ubuntu

In a terminal, I did:
$ env
I got a bunch of variables with their assigned paths

$ env EMACSLOADPATH=~/EmacsHome/
I got the bunch of variables above and also EMACSLOADPATH=~/EmacsHome/
added at the end

$ env
Now, the list of variables does not have EMACSLOADPATH=~/EmacsHome/ at the
end

Anyways, I tried opening Emacs after the executing the 2nd command above,
and I have the same problem still.
