I am currently reading/doing LPIC-1/CompTIA Linux+ Certificalation All-in-One Exam Guide by Robb H. Tracy (McGraw-Hill, 2012).

It's harder going through this book than I originally thought that it would be; hence, my reason for creating an account here.

Ch.2: Working with the Linux Shell -- Managing Shell Configuration Files

Posted 09-07-2013 at 09:12 PM by nobahn

So, OK: The below text comes from LinuxMint 15; but the problem's the same. I'm trying to look at /.profile with $ vi /.profile but what I get is a new file with that name. WTF?!

~ $ ls -a
. Documents .icons .sane
.. Downloads .linuxmint Templates
.adobe .gconf .local .themes
.bash_history .gimp-2.8 .macromedia .thumbnails
.bash_logout .gksu.lock .mozilla .thunderbird
.cache .gnome2 Music Videos
.clamtk .gnome2_private Pictures .Xauthority
.config .gns3 .pki .xsession-errors
.dbus .gtkboard .practice_file.txt.swp
Desktop .hplip .profile
.dmrc .ICEauthority Public
