View Full Version : [SOLVED] Xfce - howto set env variables?

17th October 2016, 12:23 AM
Thought it would be easy - guess I was wrong.
I've tried editing .bash_profile, creating .xinitrc (both in home folder) and etc/profile but with no success.

I've also tried creating a .sh file where I put:

export MY_VARIABLE="/path_to_desired_location"

but somehow this .sh does not work ( I may be missing something).

Atm I have to enter this variable manually in the terminal - in terminal the command works .

So how do I do that?

The end of my .bash_profile has the following:

# User specific environment and startup programs


export PATH
export VICI

You will need to log in again for these to take effect, since .bash_profile is only run at that time.

than you - I've redid the changes and now they seem to have taken effect. :)
