I feel stupid asking, but I can't seem to find the answer to this anywhere. I'm trying to follow these instructions to edit my bash prompt,but there is no .bashrc in either my user directory (~/.bashrc), or in my home directory, or in the main file system directory.
There is no .bashrc in /etc/ (there is a bash.bashrc, however).
Do I create a .bashrc file in my user or home directory? Is there a better, more recent set of instructions for modifying the bash prompt?
