Description Joachim Frieben 2016-03-05 08:00:50 UTC
Description of problem:
X environment variables like XENVIRONMENT and XUSERFILESEARCHPATH defined in $HOME/.login are ignored in a GNOME on Wayland session. Accordingly, any user-defined X resources are ignored when X applications are launched from the application grid.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start GNOME on Wayland session.
2. Launch X application from the application grid.

Actual results:
X application ignores user-specific X resources.

Expected results:
X application applies user-specific X resources.

Additional info:
- X environment variables are set correctly in a GNOME on Xorg session.
- This issue also applies to current Fedora 23.

Comment 1 Joachim Frieben 2016-03-07 08:54:39 UTC
As a matter of fact, using the C shell, all environment variables set in $HOME/.login or $HOME/.cshrc are being ignored, not only the X related ones.
