Are you using that shell?

echo $SHELL

It should be in /etc . Then just use vi or pico or whatever to edit it.

You are using the bash shell. The startup file for bash is /etc/bashrc .

Look in your HOME folder i.e. while in your login, type cd ~ or just cd. Once you are in the home directory, type ls -la. Then look for files which start with a DOT.
