running .profile on ubuntu

Since a bunch of people (myself included) have trouble with this:
You're told to set your path in your ~/.bash_profile, but Gnome doesn't source this when you bring up a terminal (nor has it already been sourced in Gnome's startup). What to do?

Simple: Gnome's startup does run through /bin/sh, which sources ~/.profile. Any changes you make in there will take effect when you next log in.
