Linux Commands for Beginners: 22 – The .bashrc File

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this tutorial I talk about the .bashrc file which you can use to make your aliases and variables regenerate each login.


  1. I want to use the CLI to add a new user (useradd <newuser>), but when I do, no .bashrc file is created. I want to be able to use MY .bashrc file for the new user, but when I copy my .bashrc and chown it to the new user, nothing happens. I don't want to use the GUI, i want to be able to add users at the command line. Help!
