I have been trying to get an alias to work.
I start my bash shell from cygwin.bat with the following command:
bash --login -i -c 'rxvt -geometry 80x29 -sb -sl 10000 -bg Black -fg
green -bd LightSeaGreen -fn Courier -font 7x15'
Try launching rxvt like this:
C:\Cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -geometry 80x29 -sb -sl 10000 -bg Black -fg
green -bd LightSeaGreen -fn Courier -font 7x15 -e /usr/bin/bash
Hurrah, that worked.
Then I set an alias.
I've tried ~/.bashrc ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile /etc/profile,
but can't get the alias to 'take'.
It's fine in ~/.bashrc
Thanks for any help.
