I'm using many environment variables to setup several softwares, like maya / nuke, houdini... those variables are refering to other variables.
to set them, I have created scripts in /etc/profile.d/ to set them for all user at once. scripts contains rows like
All was working fine in Gnome3 but this desktop is too slow and heavy, so I have switched to MATE
With MATE, when I click on "application" then the icon of an app, the software start without taking in count any of my environment variable When I start the same app from terminal, all variable are loaded normally so the variables works
what I have tried :
- put variables in /etc/environment - not working because it doesn't manage script, only text. Not usable in my config
- point the variable script in .desktop file - not handy at all, boring to update, not working that well as I have many variable for each software
how can I make Mate application menu to take in count my variables ?
using the menu editor, I have set an app as a terminal application, to make it launch through a terminal the application start but no variable are take in count I reallised that some variable works and others don't, from the exact same .sh script
in pipe.sh :
export PIPE_TOOL=/mnt/Pipeline #work
in nuke.sh :
export NUKE_LIC=1234@server #work
export NUKE_PATH=$PIPE_TOOL/Nuke #not working under MATE - return /Nuke in the app
export NUKE_GIZMO=$PIPE_TOOL/Gizmo #not working under MATE - return /Gizmo in the app
I'm using Centos 7.6 with Mate 1.16.2
