.cshrc and .login files


Hi guys,

I'm running OpenSUSE10.3 and can't find a .cshrc or .login file in my home directory. Are they created automatically, and if so, where, or do you generate them manually? Probly stupid question. Sorry!

Ta

I think you need to create them yourself. I ran tcsh in a CLI session on openSUSE 10.3 and those files weren't automatically setup.

Yep, make 'em yourself

you make them yourself, but it's no big deal because there's no fancy syntax for them. you just write one command per line, and each of them will be executed when you log in. example:

setenv DISPLAY localhost:0.0
echo "You've logged on successfully!"
firefox&
cd /usr/bin


if this is the contents of your .cshrc file then everytime you open a c-shell, it will set the DISPLAY variable, print the message, start a firefox window in the background, and change the working directory. As you can see, the syntax is just the same as in the terminal.

enjoy customizing your computer!
