For my Ubuntu 8.04/Gnome setup, putting it in ~/.profile works. But it
depends on how your distro organizes the initialization of the desktop.
There is a reasonable writeup (again about Ubuntu) here:


It has to be part of the environment of whatever process starts your
emacs (probably gnome-session), so it has to be set in an initialization
file that gnome-session reads. The reason that ~/.profile works in Ubuntu
is that gnome-session reads /etc/gdm/Xsession which includes the following:

| # First read /etc/profile and .profile
| test -f /etc/profile && . /etc/profile
| test -f "$HOME/.profile" && . "$HOME/.profile"
| # Second read /etc/xprofile and .xprofile for X specific setup
| test -f /etc/xprofile && . /etc/xprofile
| test -f "$HOME/.xprofile" && . "$HOME/.xprofile"
