THAT IS GREAT!! I created a directory ~/.kde/env/ , put a script
named "bash_profile.sh", whose sole content is
Then, my .bash_profile is sourced and I get all my env. vars.
This is *the* answer to the FAQ
"Why doesn't KDE source my ~/.bash_profile ?"
Why does this remain obscure? When I did my research,
all the answers I got from the net was:
1) Modify the system-wide KDE startup script; or
2) Put things into ~/.bashrc, instead of ~/.bash_profile; or
3) Put your stuff in ~/.xsession, at the end of which
you invoke KDE.
All these are lame hacks, and the solution Philip showed
is *the* solution.
