As this post says, the
~/.bashrc is sourced automatically in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server, which I use.
I don't know where he got this information from, but as it is not downvoted yet, I believe it is true.
I used this script to check if it is sourced:
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then echo "Not sourced!"; fi
Just for info: Permissions at the moment are 775 and owner is me.
So why is my
~/.bashrc not sourced?
