We have a file we source when a user logins in a directory named readenv.sh
This file is sourced from .cshrc
In KDE when the user logs in and opens a terminal window via the RMB on the desktop the paths are not set properly as they would be by sourcing the readenv.sh scripts/file.
For example, let's say LD_LIBRARY_PATH=1;2;3
When a user launches the terminal the LD_LIBRARY_PATH isn't set
However, if you open a terminal and su to the user again, it sources it just fine and it is set properly
In Gnome, opening a terminal from the RMB on the desktop or via the System Tools submenu CORRECTLY sets the path ...
So something in KDE is overwritting this ... this just starting since we migrated to KDE3.6
Anyone have any hints or places I can look, I do not use KDE at home or work, it is the desktop env that our end users use however which dates back to the rigid structure of Sawfish which made us migrate way back from Gnome to KDE ... although now, with KDE4 around the corner for enterprise systems, we may be running back to Gnome again ;-)
