You see anything if you do an "echo $OPCODEDIR"? (I'm not a csound user
- BTW, it is a Fedora package now). 

Or you want to know how to set them? You can add the proper incantations
to ~/.bashrc if you are using bash as your shell.

The main binary is installed in /usr/bin and that directory is part of
the normal path where commands are looked for (to see what is being
searched in your case do "echo $PATH" in a terminal).

You may need to create scripts to start your different versions of
csound with the proper parameters and environment variables.
