Wink How to set users profile


I am new and I want to be able to set up users profiles so that whenever users login to Linux their profile will be used to set up the console and others things that they may need to use.

common environment variables can be set in /etc/profile for example. see here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/bash (initialization)
