I don't think so, that is the first place that is checked. But as far
as the script above is concerned, I think the following is safer as
"start_kde" (I'm assuming that the .xinitrc file shoudl be used; I think
most distros use .Xclients):
cp -f ~/.xinitrc ~/.xinitrc.sav.$$
trap "mv -f ~/.xinitrc.sav ~/.xinitrc" 1 2 3 14 15
if [ -n "$KDEDIR" ] ; then
echo "$KDEDIR/bin/startkde" > ~/.xinitrc
mv -f ~/.xinitrc.sav ~/.xinitrc
echo "ERROR: \$KDEDIR is not defined. Cannot start kde."
