Just upgraded to 11.10, and prompted me to wondering where is now the preferred way to put customised
I have some aliases, some env variables, and a python virtualenvwrapper script, for instance, which I want to run as part of my
.bashrc. I have these synced in a script across machines stored in Dropbox.
I used to put them at the bottom of
.bashrc, and then I put them in a file called
.bash_profile which it sourced, but now I see that
.bashrc no longer sources
.bashrc_local (did it ever or did I customise this?), and I note that it sources
So I've decided as it's non existent at the mo to put the stuff in
.bash_aliases, as it seems cleanest to have my customisations in a separate file to the default.
I got scared off
.profile as it already has stuff in it.
I realise what I'm doing works, but it seems a bit counter intuitive to be putting these things in a file called aliases when it's not all aliases.
Is this the correct place for this?
