The bashrc file is actually called .bashrc and is normally located in each user directory.

If you want transparent terminal, download a terminal like aterm, gnome-terminal or eterm.

There is a "master" bashrc file in /etc which is run whenever anyone logs in. You have to be root to edit it.

Remember to back it up before you make changes! I had made a minor mistake in mine once and it cost me time and headache.

The /etc/bashrc file is for setting things globally for all users when they login while the ~/.bashrc file is for local user settings.
