KDE environment variables


What are the default values set by Mandrake 9.2 for the KDE environment variables?

How can I view the values of these variables and how can I change them?

Cheers

To see all your environment variable open a konsole and type

env

you can pipe the results through grep to narrow it down

env |grep kde

To change them you have to export them in the .bashrc file. This file is in your home directory.
For example, this line will set the $JAVA_HOME variable to this path

export JAVA_HOME=/developement/java/j2sdk/jre


But it depends what you are trying to do. KDE sets its own variables so it knows where to find its own files, changing them will affect the way your desktop behaves.
