I added some lines to my ~/.bashrc like
I sourced it:
$ source ~/.bashrc $ env | grep 'JAVA' JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_22
Then I created a basic bash script under a folder called scripts in my home:
#!/bin/bash echo 'start' echo $(env | grep HOME) echo $(env | grep LOGNAME) echo $(env | grep JAVA) echo 'exiting' sleep 5 exit
Now, if I launch it directly I get the expected output
$ cd ~/scripts $ bash 'myScript.sh' start HOME=/home/foo/.config LOGNAME=foo JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_22 exiting
However I need to call it in a different way using the following command, and unluckily it doesn't work in the same way:
$ lxterminal --command "bash /home/foo/scripts/myScript.sh" start HOME=/home/foo XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/home/foo/.config LOGNAME=foo exiting
It seems like .bashrc is not sourced in this way. I tried with .profile too, but with the same result.
Is there another file sourced by lxterminal when called with the above command?
The reason why I need this command is because I want to launch these my own scripts through links/launchers I added to the start-menu and they have to be executed on a lxterminal window.
