KDE set environment variables
 
Hi,

I used to log in with the terminal and then use startx to start graphical environment.
I've just installed kdm/kde and it works great.

I have placed my setup script in ~/.kde/autostart/setup.sh and it works fine - except that the environment variables doesn't get set.

Now how do I do this ??

Thanks !!

It does get executed ... but after KDE is loaded,
and in a child-session of KDE. Therefore the
environment variables won't be pulled. You want
to set those from ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile
respectively...


Cheers,
Tink

Hi,

Thanks a LOT for the answer :-)

Now my environment variables are set everytime I create a terminal which I guess is fine,
while deamons etc. are started one time from a script in ~/.kde/autostart/script

works for me :-)
