Default when and by what is .profile read?

Hello, I seem to have trouble that my .profile is not read when I log in using slim. I assume this since none of the paths in .profile are exported.
I know that ~/.xinitrc is read according to slim.conf, but that only runs startxfce4 at my computer. Should I add ~/.profile as another command line to be executed at login in slim.conf?
Also there are problems with certain of the arrow keys etc in the xterms, e.g I cannot scroll back to previous commands or use the tab for completion.
