Question regarding .bash_profile/.bashrc
I have read that that bash uses one of these two files, depending on the type of shell being used, to configure your shell with any user specific settings. I have created these two files (in my /home directory) and added the aliases that I would like to use (in .bashrc). I know that they both work as I have .bash_profile sourcing .bashrc. I added an echo to both to show me that they are running and after I manually source .bash_profile, all of my aliases in .bashrc work properly. The aliases do not work in text mode or in konsole (under KDE) until I manually source them. Is there something that I need to do to get bash to use the .bash_profile or .bashrc (depending on if I am in text or X)?
I am sure it is something simple that I am just not doing. Any help would be appreciated.
