Re: [dev] [wmii][surf] environment variables

How do you launch a wmii session? .xinitrc?

In experimenting with using env vars, based on various needs I have, I
found that exporting from wmiirc, and re-running it, works in a pinch
as well.

In your case, are you using .xsession/.xinitrc? If so, I would export
the needed vars there, or source your bashrc (if that makes sense in
your setup) from that file.
