Re: [K12OSN] a shell Brain teaser



The problem is not bash, the problem is KDE.  When you start a terminal, it is 
running bash, but not in a login session, so the profile isnt read completely 
(or at least something like that) Change kde so that instead of just opening 
a window, have it start a login session.
