Re: No sourcing of ~/.profile at login

I tried both suggestions:
1) Copying the contents of ~/.profile into ~/.bash_profile. No effect.

Hmm. Two more ideas:
- Are you sure you are actually using bash as your shell (check in
- How exactly do you try to logout and login again (e.g. a `su user´
will not parse .profile, while a `su - user´ will).
Note on the /etc/skel/.bash_profile: Removing it will not have any
effect, it will just avoid .bash_profile being created in new users'
home directories if you create them.
