Xfce - howto set env variables?

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?

Re: Xfce - howto set env variables?

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.
Has anyone seriously considered that it might be turtles all the way down?
That's very old fashioned thinking.
The current model is that it's holographic nested virtualities of turtles, all the way down.
