Package: x2goserver
Version: 4.1.0.0

Greetings,

When launching X sessions, x2goserver-xsession does not source the following files:

/etc/profile
$HOME/.profile
/etc/xprofile
$HOME/.xprofile

This can lead to problems if important things are needed from these files, usually PATH additions. I've looked at a couple of greeters - lightdm and gdm - and each of these source these files within their Xsession script.

So, the fix is to just use the same logic in the Xsession script within x2goserver-xsession. Below (and attached) is a patch based on code from the lightdm Xsession script.

Thanks for your attention and please let me know if you have any questions or need any other information.
