    Aliases

    I have been looking forever for a .bashrc or .bash_profile, with no luck. Am I just looking in the wrong place, or...?

    Re:Aliases

    On some systems you have to create your own .profile .bash_profile, etc....

    There's usually a default for everyone in the /etc directory though... might look there for a start

    On some, you create your own? I sure didn't know that. Well, at least there isn't too much to them. I am such an idiot... All I needed was "find / -name .bashrc". That would at least tell me if it is already on the system. I tell you what... My brain is not functioning today...

    i believe if you use adduser it creates .bash_profile for you in your user dir.

    if a file is in /etc/skel, it will be copied into the new home directory when you create a user.
    As long as you are using bash, just creating a file should be fine.
    .bash_profile is the best place to put login stuff (aparently)
