View Full Version : 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:cool:
