Profile variable exports in text mode, not in GUI mode....huh?


Hello,

Thanks for taking a minute to look at my issue. I am trying to set the below variable in my /etc/profile. I am able to export this variable in text mode (init 3) correctly but not in gui mode (init 5) where I get a null.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$SPCH_ROOT/bin:/usr/bin

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Using RHES 4.

Thanks,

Dan

IIRC you don't have a login shell when you authenticate to the GUI. What happens if you start a terminal window as a login shell (e.g. xterm -ls) or, in an existing terminal window start another shell as a login shell (e.g. bash -l) and type echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH?
