Description Christian Neumair 2006-01-20 11:27:29 UTC
As part of project ridley, we're trying to get rid of gnome-util from libgnome.
Therefore, we need a gnome_clearenv equivalent, which could be provided as g_clearenv or g_unsetenv (NULL);

Also, a gnome_util_user_shell equivalent should be provided.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2006-01-20 16:34:29 UTC
We have g_listenv() and g_unsetenv(), so clearenv is just a matter of a simple loop. Is it worth adding a function for that ? How many applications need to clear their environment ?

Oh, and regarding user shell, see bug 309475
