    login "scripts"

    Anyone know of a way to setup a login script on a debian machine? I just want to put some of the commands I find myself exectuting everytime I login in the script. Example would be using alias to change ls to ls --color.

    Oh and I finally figured out how to properly assign mod access to directories

    dont you put it in the .bashrc file in the home directory.
    I think it's hiddin, but I don't know about debian.

    Thanks for the tip. From there I was able to figure out that I needed to change .bash_profile to include .bashrc (had to uncomment 3 lines).

    Got it working, thanks

    another choice

    `.bashrc' script is for specific users.
    '/etc/rc.d/rc.local' script is for all users.

    I guess I should be more active in these forums
    You could also edit your /etc/conf.d/local.start
    Not every distrobution has the rc scripts ex: Gentoo
