Default Setting Global Variables for PATH

Dear Admins,

I have install a xampp for Linux version 1.7.1 and setup the initial configurations. Attempting to load mysql an error "command not found". i realize that the path may not be set correctly. I set the path using the following command at the console "export PATH=$PATH:/opt/lampp/bin" and the reissue the mysql command. this worked but everytime i close the console and relaunch, i have to red the steps. How can i make the path persistent? any advise?
