Kde starts as "sh /usr/bin/startkde" or such, that may work. Since I am working with "csh", I never created .profile. My ".login" and ".cshrc" were ignored if started from desktop. It took a while to discover .pam_environment file. See "6.6.6 FILES, User specific environment file" in http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/Linux-PAM-html/Linux-PAM_SAG.html Kornel
