Is there a .profile script in Linux?


What is the FIRST script that executes to setup your environment when you login? Where is it located?
I am looking for things like .profile and .login in unix world.

Thanks,
-Rajeev

rsuri,

/etc/profile Aditional files can be found in /etc/profile.d/ (at least in Slackware).

About .login ... it depends on which shell are you using. If it's BASH, then files like:
.bash_login .bash_profile .bashrc or simply .profile

can be found in your home directory.
