With LXDM as display manager '~/.xprofile' not parsed.

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lxdm

If I create a .xprofile file in my home directory and for example add the line:

export WINDOW_MANAGER="/usr/bin/mutter"

: then log out, log in, open a terminal window and type:


: the variable is not set.

To verify I logged out, stopped LXDM, started GDM, logged in, and then did the echo test in the terminal window again and it showed the expected '/usr/bin/mutter' as the result.
