Aight, I'm stumped.
I am running Slackware 10, kernel 18.104.22.168
xorg 6.8.1 or something similar to that.
And I installed aterm to use it as my "default" terminal, now that worked good.
However, I wanted it to look fancy, so I installed xorg 6.8, composite, and transset.
Everyting works, almost.
I made a file in /etc/profile.d/ called bash.sh, that includes the line:
PS1="[\d][\u@\h \w].> "
It's chmoded to be executable, and the funny thing is, it works as root, but as a regular user, I get this output:
[\d][\u@\h \w]:>, and not [Weekday Date][User@hostname directory]:>
What would the reason for that be?
I hade an .Xdefaults file that looked like this:
Now, I borrowed this from a post here at LQ.
And another thing, whenever I start X, I would run xcompmgr and transset on the terminal, is there any way of getting this process automated? I don't want a solution spoonfed to me, but I've been searching google for what seems like a decade, and I don't know what to search for.
Oh, and yeah, I tried setting "777" as mode for the /etc/profile.d/ file.
