DISPLAY is null (not defined) when x2go is running, as well as when it isn't, in my case.

I have made my software switchable between GUI non-GUI by examining the DISPLAY variable - if it is NULL then x2go is not being used.

Subject: [X2Go-Dev] Bug#1134: No environment variable available for testing in .bash_profile or .bashrc

Package: NXAGENT
Version: 3.5.0

I would like to bypass setting of certain environment variables in .bash_profile if I’m connecting via x2go, but it appears there are no environment variables I can test in .bash_profile to determine if this is an x2go session. After the session starts, some x2go environment variables are there, but not while .bash_profile is executing.
