I am trying to set the environmental variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the directly i am currently working on.

This is the command which i gave.


In response, i received the following error.

 LD_LIBRARY_PATH: Undefined variable.

The main purpose of the command is to set the library path as the current working directory since i am not granted a super admin power to copy my files in the usr/lib folder.

How to solve this

    you don't need to run any export command. Just setenv is enough.
