there are aliases commented out in your .bashrc file. i would suggest
uncommenting those. then, since virtual consoles are processed as a
login shell .bash_profile will be sourced. you also want .bashrc
sourced, and there is an 'if' statement commented out in
your .bash_profile that sources .bashrc. uncomment that and relogin.
