As the variables sometimes have spaces, this might be more reliable:

    xargs systemctl --user set-environment < test

(With -d '\n' or without, depending on chosen syntax.)

It's possible to emulate "import-environment" using:

    xargs -d '\0' systemctl --user set-environment < /proc/self/environ
