When using TotalTerminal, a guake-like terminal helper, the default shell, bash, is not started under execution of the .bashrc. Hence, any custom commands defined or changed in this file will not be effective until you source the .bashrc manually.
However, there is a way to perform this automatically:
- Open TotalTerminal, select Terminal and Preferences.
- Select Settings in the top panel and your default profile in the left one.
- Open the Shell tab and tick both Run command and Run inside shell.
source ~/.bashrc && clear
into the command field.
From now on, the .bashrc will be executed just as you are used to for linux.
