.alias file


How do I get my .alias file to work? I have a few alias commands in there but they don’t seem to work. Any alias commands I add to my .bashrc file won’t work either.


I put my alias commands in .bash_profile and they work okay.



Sure enough, you are right, it works. I’m confused about what that .alias file is for. thanks.


I think the .alias file is used in SuSe version of linux so maybe whoever setup the skel files that are created for new usernames wrote and added in an .alias file.
I believe this version of linux maybe Debian.
Sometines bashrc can be setup to call .alias but maybe it’s not.
