Either doesn't work. As far as I can see, ~/.profile does not get executed at 
all (did you mean .bash_profile? or maybe it's a tcsh/ksh/... specific file), 
while .bashrc is only executed when I start a bash. The variable is not set 
for any application that I start via KDE, e.g. a tcsh I used for testing. But 
I need it set in graphical applications.


Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only 
specification is that it should run noiselessly.
