KDE executes all files in ~/.kde/env/ on startup, so this is the place
to hook on for setting up an environment. I have a file ~/.profile for
doing that, and in ~/.kde/env/ theres:

| address@hidden ~> cd .kde/env/
| address@hidden ~/./env> ls
| address@hidden ~/./env> cat 
| #!/bin/sh
| source ~/.profile
| address@hidden ~/./env>

People sometimes  ask me if it  is a sin in  the Church of  Emacs to use
vi. Using a free  version of vi is not a sin; it  is a penance. So happy
hacking. (Richard M. Stallman)
