After exit the X system bash doesn't work.


Good day , I haven't noticed that when i exit the X ( fluxbox ) the bash doesn't work at all . The prompt is not the one that is in the .bashrc and the aliases don't work, i have to type bash to make the bash work and i was wondering how can i make the bash work after i exit the X. Cheers! people

That doesn't happen to me with Slackware and fluxbox. How are you starting fluxbox and what is the prompt you're left with when you exit fluxbox please?

You know it's wierd because this thing doesn't happen all the time i couldn't find out when happens. I start Flux from command line after i login as normal user i type startx the propt label is the one i hav ein the .bashrc :

Code:
PS1="\u@\h[\w]$:"
alias turnoff="sudo /sbin/poweroff"
alias restart="sudo /sbin/shutdown -r now"
WHen it doesn't work it displays : MyUsrName@Myhostname:$

If you run startx every time but the problem only happens sometimes, that is weird. The quickest workaround would be to run the following instead of just startx:
Code:
startx && bash -l
That will start a bash login shell after you exit fluxbox. The downside is that if you're not shutting down the box when you leave fluxbox, you'll need to exit that shell when you logout.

Have you made any changes to startx or is it the default version that comes with Slackware?
