Eterm doesn't import aliases from bashrc


When I open an Eterm, none of the aliases I have defined in bashrc are recognised. Eg. if i try ll (alias for ls -l), I get

-bash: ll: command not found

These aliases all work if I use Xterms. Is there another script that Eterm calls when it starts up, or what?

(Eterm0.9.3, Enlightenment0.16.7, Slackware10.1, kernel2.6.11)

try putting aliases in ~/.profile or ~/.bash_login (it's another one which i forget)

or man bash :P
