Request for help with kdm & environment variables

I'm trying to figure out how to get my environment variables in effect
in applications that run under KDE (on linux).  I use tcsh as my

So I made the following .xsession file, per the instructions in the
KDE manuals:

source ~/.tcshrc

Unfortunately, this does not appear to have any effect, and the
environment variables I setenv in ~/.tcshrc aren't available to
applications started from the KDE menu.  There's nothing printed in
.xsession-errors that shows anything going wrong.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks,
