I didn't know if to add the following, but I might as well do it:

For the specific case of TeXLive (I also use Ubuntu), I don't follow the 
above method, but I prepend the PATH of .../texlive... in 
/etc/environment (I haven't installed yet TeXLive 2021):


Also I keep /usr/local/texlive owned by root (a habit from my old Mac 
days), so i have to

    sudo su

in the terminal to update texlive (sudo tlmgr doesn't work with my 
setup: «sudo: tlmgr: command not found»).
