Creating aliases in the .bashrc file
When logged in as root I sucessfully edited the /bashrc file in the /root DIR with a number of basic, yet handy, command alias shortcuts. these work fine, but when im logged in as a normal user they do not work.
There is no /bashrc file in my home DIR when logged in as the normal user, and i've tried copying it over from the root DIR (when root) but that hasn't made any differences, even though i've changed the permissions so the user is indeed the owner.
Where do normal users store their command aliases for the bash shell if not in the .bashrc file? or am i doing something wrong?
