    Setting XDG Base directory environment variables


    Hi all,

    The XDG Base Directory Specification makes reference to a number of environment variables defining the paths for various base directories;

    $XDG_DATA_HOME
    $XDG_CONFIG_HOME
    $XDG_DATA_DIRS
    etc....

    Can anybody advise where these environment variables are actually set?

    Thanks.
