This is when you are in octave. But if I want to change it at start time ? Is there a file with this info somewhere ?

type "help path" at the octave prompt for more info. Briefly,
you can save the current path to a string, as in

  octave:1> initial_path = path ()
  initial_path = :/home/miquel/Octave//:

where the trailing double forward slash indicates Octave to look
under all subdirectories under the path

To append a directory to the path,

  octave:2> path(LOADPATH,"/home/miquel/temp//")
  ans = :/home/miquel/Octave//::/home/miquel/temp:/home/miquel/temp//

where LOADPATH contains the current path. To set a new path and discard
the current one simply drop LOADPATH

  octave:3> path("/home/miquel/temp//")
  ans = /home/miquel/temp:/home/miquel/temp//

since I save the initial path, I can recover it by simply typing,

  octave:4> path(initial_path)
  ans = :/home/miquel/Octave//:
