9.10 with TeX Live 2009 and TeXmaker 1.9.2

Firstly, I installed TeX Live 2009. After finishing, I added


to my .bashrc and to the system wide bash.bashrc.

I created a .tex file with gedit and compiled it using the terminal (after cd to the dir) with

pdflatex foo.tex

and it worked fine.

After I installed TeXmaker 1.9.2 via Synaptic. The configuration shows standard parameters.
But the strange thing, when I compile a .tex file using TeXmaker, the editor works but _does not_ use the TeX Live 2009, instead the .log file shows:
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6) (format=pdflatex 2010.1.3)  3 JAN 2010 08:44
entering extended mode
 %&-line parsing enabled.

Why is TeXmate not using TeX Live 2009? Does it something has to do with the PATH config for the root user, because

sudo env

does not include the PATH mentioned above?

Please excuse myself if I am not precise enough, but I am quite new to Ubuntu

Thanks in advance,
