~/.bashrc not being sourced.


My ~.bashrc isn't being sourced when opening an xterm. Ive tried adding...

Code:
if [ -f /etc/bash.bashrc ] ; then
  . /etc/bash.bashrc
fi
to /etc/profile. Ive also tried...

Code:
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ] ; then
  ~/.bashrc
fi
in ~/bash_profile.

What am I doing wrong?

PS: Seems changing Distro might be a little more difficult than Id'e assumed. Been using Gentoo for about 4 years. (A bit stuck in my ways)

Sorry, I figured it out when I also noticed my ~/.bashrc file wasn't being sourced via the console either. When I set up my account I didn't specify a shell. Debian defaults to /bin/sh not /bin/bash.

Sorted.
