comment How do you set up the environment for es?
Well, being an annoying person (see comments above?), I'll say I already knew about this. It's a toss-up whether this or my slightly disturbing code is a better option; one lacks conceptual elegance (I'm claiming that I log in for every terminal, when I create 100s over a single real login?), the other lacks implementation elegance (but I really feel the environment should be set up on login).

I think this is applicable to all non-Bourne shells launched from a modern desktop manager (i.e. gdm, lightdm, etc.)

Hmm, not sure I agree with your edit, Gilles. Why do you think this only applies to es? (and not *csh or rc or ...?) And why remove gdm and lightdm, since they're the ones that control the environment?

At least with most X terminals, this is an option that is disabled by default (as it should be, IMO). So yes, it is a workaround, but there's no reason this stuff should be run multiple times when it could be run once.

es is my login shell. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. But login shells aren't run in X sessions before terminals are launched, at least as far as I know.
