file is a bash script controlled by the user
that is run every time a bash shell (e.g., "terminal window") is started. Nothing in that script is intended to be run for every system user.
If you want something to be executed by everyone
, put the commands in /etc/bashrc
instead of the user's ~/.bashrc
file. Note that the /etc/bashrc
program can easily contain user-specific commands:
if [ "$USER" = "user_name" ]
and so on.
