This is for the program git-cola, although I think the question is more general. It is also using LM Cinnamon 18.
The environment variable I want to set is
SCALE_GIT_COLA=2 so that the program looks good with a HiDPI display.
If I add
export SCALE_GIT_COLA=2 to my
.profile, then open a terminal and run
git-cola, I get the desired effect.
However, if I use a launcher (I am using Albert, but again I think this is more general) to run
git-cola, then it looks as if
SCALE_GIT_COLA=2 has not been set.
How can I get launchers run through the Cinnamon desktop to respect environment variables set through
.profile? Or, where else can I add these environment variables so that I get this behavior?
