comment Setting system wide environment variable in Ubuntu 8.04 Server
I think I got bitten badly by a quirk in my own setup: I am using ssh connection sharing, and of course no authentication is performed as long as an open connection is still there. So I had to kill all opened connections to the remote host, and reconnect from scratch. Now /etc/environment is being read as expected.

I have added the line session required pam_env.so to /etc/pam.d/common-session, and verified that my ssh server is using PAM (UsePAM yes). It is still not working. I have even restarted the SSH server, but I had no luck. Any idea?
