I put ". .bash_profile" to the fluxbox start up script and still the aliases seem to be ignored. Where should I put the "source" statement? I checked info bash and it references .bash_profile for startup?
Well it just looks like
xterm -bg black -fg white
I have xterm and other aliases to have "defaults" and not require common flags.
And recently I added functions to the place where aliases are which I would like also to be able to use from the fluxbox menu.
