Description soldatov 2006-11-23 16:34:36 UTC
- Add this file into project:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    printf("PATH=%s\n", getenv("PATH"));
    printf("AAA=%s\n", getenv("AAA"));
    return (EXIT_SUCCESS);

- Open Project Properties window for this project and go to 'Running' subcategory

It is bug same IZ89718 (
For example I can reproduce its on sqao35 (on sqao35:2 display).

If gnome-terminal just appeared, but in internal output
window I've already watched "Run successful. Exit value 0.", then I have wrong
environment variables.
But If gnome-terminal started correctly, then I see 'PATH=/home/sssss' and
'AAA=ZZZ' in gnome-terminal
Comment 2 _ gordonp 2006-11-28 19:01:26 UTC
Developer note: gnome-terminal typically runs in a server mode. If I start
5 gnome-terminals the 1st one starts a persistant gnome-terminal process and
the others send a message to the persistant process to open a new window.

This means that the environment is usually set prior to running a program in
the IDE. So the only way to fix this issue would be to pass and env file and
have source it.
