You can edit your shell profile to permanently add the commands. There are several different shells available for Linux and each has a different profile. For example:
Edit the appropriate source file for your shell and add
:$HOME/dotnet to the end of the existing
PATH statement. If no
PATH statement is included, add a new line with
export DOTNET_ROOT=$HOME/dotnet to the end of the file.
