xterm/konsole: what if not .bash_profile?

I found that this is all to do with the way that KDE itself starts. You
probably wont be able to use Karchiver because it doesn't have your path

If I recall, I added -login (or -ls) to the #!/bin/bash line at the very top
of the startkde script. This way, KDE runs as a login and gets all of your
settings from ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc (I can never remember which one
is which).

Hope this helps a bit.


PS - KDE provides a very nice term called Konsole. This is a much improved
(IMHO) version of xterm.
