How do you mean "different paths"?

You can set variables for use in command line like:

export VIDEO=$HOME/Videos

then if you want to throw a file into the $HOME/Videos folder you can use

mv file $VIDEO

and it will move there. Your question is hugely vague so I have had a guess at the hope of a quick fix. If this is not what you mean please clarify.


Can you help with this problem?
