19 It applies to all desktop environments. Whenever you change your
20 central environment variables you must logout and login again, so that
21 the revisions to /etc/profile and all its associated scripts are
22 re-elaborated.
24 In a console shell, you can usually do:
25 . /etc/profile
26 and the new environment values will be assigned. This is why we are
27 told to do that when we use eselect to switch slots of some slotted
28 package, such as GCC.
