hmmm - suspicion is creeping up .....

have you checked with ls -la? Unless you are root "ls -l" will not show you all the files with names starting with a dot ("."). Usually all these files are indeed in your home directory. If they are not there just create them. To get to your homedirectory from whereever you are enter "cd" without any parameter.

by the way:

Original by vino
you can put those env variables in ~/.bashrc
This *is* an absolute path, as "~" expands to your home directory - try it out: "cd" and "cd ~" will take you to the same directory. The first one because this is the default for the "cd"-program, the second one, because the shell will expand "~" to your homedir.
