NAME

 icewm-env - icewm environment configuration file

 

SYNOPSIS

 $ICEWM_PRIVCFG/env
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/env
 $HOME/.icewm/env
 /etc/icewm/env
 /usr/share/icewm/env

 

DESCRIPTION

icewm-session(1) loads additional environment variables from the file env before it does anything else. These variables are then propagated to all other processes, including icewm(1), via their environment.  

FORMAT

Each line is subjected to POSIX shell expansion by wordexp(3). Comment lines starting by a hash-sign ("#") are ignored. icewm-session(1) will load those expanded lines which contain a name, followed by an equals sign, followed by the value (which may be empty).  

EXAMPLES

 # This is a comment.
 # And another.

 XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP="ICEWM"
 XDG_MENU_PREFIX="unexicon-"

 START_DATE=`date`
 START_FROM=`pwd`

 

FILES

icewm-session(1) looks for the env file in the following locations:

 $ICEWM_PRIVCFG/env
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/env
 $HOME/.icewm/env
 /etc/icewm/env
 /usr/share/icewm/env

The locations are searched in the order listed; the first file found is read and the remainder ignored.
