RE: bash

.bash_profile works for me

I seem to recall that there are some conf files that aren't read if it has
the wrong permissions.

Try chmod 644 .bash_profile first

Just to be sure, put an "echo 'something'" near the top of .bash_profile

Dear debian users,

My understanding with the original Bourne shell was that when it starts up, 
it will execute .profile in the users home directory. How does this work in 
bash? I have a .bash_profile but I know that it isn't executed since my PATH

variable isn't updated everytime I log on.
