Whatever it is that you wanted to know.

E.g. if you were wondering "Can I set umask 002 for my entire session,
both terminals and menu-launched GUI apps?" then you might try setting
umask in whatever place is appropriate (probably ~/.xsessionrc) and
seeing whether it takes effect everywhere.

If you were wondering "Can I set LANG=en_US.UTF-8 together with
LC_TIME=C", then try *that*.

It's a lot faster to try things and see what happens, than to wait for
random people on a mailing list to offer their guesses.
