gnome wayland session: .bash_profile ignored
Last modified: 2015-11-11 07:30:28 EST
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to GNOME (Wayland)
2. $ cat .bash_profile
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
# User specific environment and startup programs
3. $ echo $PATH
Is there anything happening to find out what causes this bug?
Because it is really annoying.
We're tracking this upstream here:
The issue is right now the start up path contains a tower of shell scripts that have nothing to do with the graphical session, and wayland is an opportunity to break away from that.
Obviously we need a way for users to set environment variables, though. See the upstream bug for more details.
