The truth is rarely pure and never simple

TotalTerminal and .bashrc

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.

source ~/.bashrc

However, there is a way to perform this automatically:

  1. Open TotalTerminal, select Terminal and Preferences.
  2. Select Settings in the top panel and your default profile in the left one.
  3. Open the Shell tab and tick both Run command and Run inside shell.
  4. Enter
    source ~/.bashrc && clear

    into the command field.

From now on, the .bashrc will be executed just as you are used to for linux.
