SGTM. Especially when binary packages are built.

Which shells execute /etc/profile.d? Could this break csh et al?

Hey guys.

I'm wondering if placing a symbolic link to on install might not be a good idea.  Other frameworks (qt) do this to add environment variables to the shell when the user logs in.  I currently do this and it makes using GNUstep much nicer since the environment is already configured whether I am using the FHS layout or the GNUstep layout.

I just wanted to see what everyone thought about doing this before taking any steps.

We currently do something similar to this by adding GNUstep.conf in /etc, but this does not set up the environment (at least not for me).

Please let me know your thoughts.
