.bashrc over ridden by ?
Setting up .bashrc in my ~/ is doing nothing and apparently is being ignored by some other profile. If I recall correctly it was working as it should until I installed kde but I'm not at all sure: perhaps /etc/profile? Anyone know what's up?

The only *bashrc that exists it the one i created in ~.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Are you sure that's the correct file? I always forget which file does what, but .bash_profile and .bashrc are used for different things, one is for a login shell and the other an interactive shell. The equivalent system wide files should be bashrc at /etc and /etc/profile, respectively."Today you are freer than ever to do what you want, provided you can pay for it!" --Bad Religion

/etc/profile is the only file here aside from the .bashrc that I created. I've had it working previously with slack but something changed. I suppose I can modify /etc/profile but sure like to figure out what's going on. I know that some apps will over-ride .bashrc but I did have it working before!! I just want to add some aliases so no big deal but that's not the point now .

kde takes precedence over ~/.bachrc so I assume kde profile is the place to make the changes. Did'nt test it out though since I use fluxbox almost exclusively.
