Except it doesn't work for setting environment variables. However it
does work for running the xmodmap command below.

What did work was putting:

into /etc/profile! For those wanting a scim tutorial that is the final
step, no need to read any further.

However I also put this line in /etc/profile:
  DARREN_TEST_A="Hello World A"

and yet that is not set. There is something weird going on here, but as
scim now works I guess I will never find out what...

I found out about a file called ~/.Xkbmap from reading comments in gdm
configuration files. This is quite definitely where this kind of
configuration should go. However it does not work. Put the xmodmap
command in /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default instead.
