Easy - by doing exactly that before you run xpp, e.g.

I think Sarah said she was on ubuntu 12.10.

According to the bash manual page, .bash_profile is run when you start a login shell and .bashrc is run on any bash shell.

I always used to put things like this in bash_profile and this seemed to work OK for shell scripts started in emacs until I upgraded from ubuntu 10.02 to 12.02 and then it stopped working.

Then I decided to use .bash_aliases and made sure that .bashrc loads bash_aliases (I can't remember if it came that way now).
