Setting OPENMODELICALIBRARY environment variable

I had difficulties to set OPENMODELICALIBRARY environment variable in Linux Ubuntu 10.10. The detail of the problem and the solution can be found in this post:
http://www.openmodelica.org/index.php/forum/topic?id=151

The solution is to use setEnvironmentVar(“varname”,”value”). There is also a getEnvironmentVar(“varname”) to extract. And we can check whether it is set using checkSettings().
