This was the key piece of information you hadn't told us! I was
assuming you were starting it from the cmd line...
In general, anything you start from a menu/gui launcher does NOT
inherit your environment. You can see that by simply making a
launcher that calls a shell script that does
env > ~/env.txt
and you'll see an environment without your personal variables.
I think there's a way to set the env. so it's inherited by gui
launchers too, but I've never bothered to find out the details. I
just keep Tilda on call at F12 and start everything from it.
