Can you set an alias on login here? [SOLVED]

Hi,

Is it possible to set an alias when I login?

Like: alias ll="ls -hal"
You can add that to your ~/.bashrc file.

I tried that. It's not working :o(

After editing your .bashrc file, you need to source it (source ~/.bashrc), or log out and back in to apply any changes. BTW the "ll" alias might be already in your .bashrc (it's a default), if you want to change its behaviour, find and edit that one line.

I have some trouble with the .bashrc file. It is not there and when I made a new one it did't work.

So I put the alias in the file: .profile and now the alias is set when I log in.
