simple question about .dmrc .bashrc


Simple question(s):

Is .dmrc the equivalent of .bashrc in debian and ubuntu systems? (A friend says they're the same but I disagree and can't find anything on google)

more importantly my new (really old) linux box a work has a .dmrc but no .bashrc where do I add my aliases????

thanks
MO

I suggest you 'man bash' to get some additional information. Your '~./bashrc' & '~./bash_profile' are useful to setup for personal initialization of the environment.

You could setup a .bashrc & .bash_profile for a user;

Code:
sample .bash_profile;

~$ cat .bash_profile
# .bash_profile
#08-30-06 12:21
#
# Source .bashrc
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi
Code:
sample .bashrc;
:~$ cat .bashrc

#.bashrc
#08-30-06 12:20 

# Add bin to path

export PATH="$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin:$HOME/bin"

#export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/bin"

# Dynamic resizing
shopt -s checkwinsize

# Custom prompt
#PS1='\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '

#08-29-06 11:40

if [ `id -un` = root ]; then
   PS1='\[\033[1;31m\]\h:\w\$\[\033[0m\] '
 else
   PS1='\[\033[1;32m\]\h:\w\$\[\033[0m\] '
fi

#
# Add color
eval `dircolors -b`

# User defined aliases
alias cls='clear'
alias clls='clear; ls'
alias ll='ls -l'
alias lsa='ls -A'
alias lsg='ls | grep'
alias lsp='ls -1 /var/log/packages/ > package-list'
alias na='nano'
alias web='links -g -download-dir ~/ www.google.com'

#08-29-06 11:50

#To clean up and cover your tracks once you log off
#Depending on your version of BASH, you might have to use
# the other form of this command
   trap "rm -f ~$LOGNAME/.bash_history" 0

#The older KSH-style form
#   trap 0 rm -f ~$LOGNAME/.bash_history
The .bashrc is very useful! I use the '~./bash_profile' to test then invoke the '~/bashrc' to setup for the user.

Thanks for the great information but I was wondering whether I can just add a .bashrc and .bash_profile to my home directory or whether there would be a conflict with .dmrc that would cause me endless head(heart)ache afterwards?

Once again, thanks for your help

Hi,

Just create the '~/bashrc' & '~/bash_profile'.
