Check your shell, since every shell has a different configuration file.
~$ echo $SHELL
~$ grep <usrename> /etc/passwd
Also you can check for following files in home directory:-
.bashrc (Bash shell)
.cshrc (c shell)
If you cannot find it, then it loads shell variables from system's profile files, like:-
Moreover, you can find and copy those shell initialization files (I am not sure about slakware, but check it one) from /etc/skel directory.
~$ cp /etc/skel/<file> /home/<username>
