that worked perfectly, you really should translate that page into english

does anyone remember where one can add an extra path such that 
programmes like texmaker will know where latex is when they are started 
via the menus?

adding say /opt/texlive/2008/bin/i386-linux to the path in bashrc, works 
fine as long as you start your programmes from the commandline, but does 
not work if the programme is started via a menu item.
