  1. Check what shell you are using:
    Code:
    echo $SHELL
  2. Read the FILES section of the manual page for your shell, e.g.
    Code:
    man bash
  3. Check for the existence/permissions of the files listed in the man page.
  4. If you're still unsure, put echo lines in the various files, e.g.
    Code:
    echo "this is the ~/.bash_profile"
