I have noticed that the environment variables I export in my
.bashrc files are not available to applications started via a desktop shortcut. At least to my IDE.
They are available if I start it from terminal.
Do I really have to modify
/etc/profile to make the variables accessible to every program? I would prefer having them user-specific. I am sure there's a better way, but I lack the experience.
I am running Mint 11.
