How to set PATHs for Xstations when using Xdesktop
Question: I have added an application to the XDesktop but when I
click on the icon I get a message saying that the application
cannot be found. If I click on an icon to start an aixterm
window and look at the environment variables, no environment
variables including the paths have been exported even though
they are defined in the user's .profile file.
How can I set the PATHs and environment variables so that
they are exported to XDesktop.
Because the customer is on an Xstation, the .profile is not
automatically read which sets the PATH. In order to have it
automatically read, the customer should add the following
statement in the $HOME/.xinitrc file to cause the .profile to be
read and set for the XDesktop.
Will also tell the customer that if they want the /etc/environment
and /etc/profile files executed for an Xstation then the
files should be placed in the file:
