I actually believe that on some distros .bashrc/.profile is sourced by default
on gdm, and on others, .xprofile is used for this purpose. I don't think a login
shell or interactive shell should be used for this purpose though.

Perhaps what could be done would be to allow build environment variables to be
customized in Geany?

Kind regards,
