Each time I run the rviz "rosrun rviz rviz" I have to "export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1". And if I open a new windows, I have to export it again. I want to know how should I do if just set it once,and next time I run rviz,I can not set it. Thank you very much.

If you want an environment variable (like LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE) to be set automatically every time you open a new terminal, add it to the bash startup file (.bashrc) in your home directory.
