if you are like me - a newbie here's a description of an alias from here
i think to get it working you have to do thisalias - an alternate name or abbreviation (usually short and easy to remember) that substitutes for a pathname, command, list, or expression (usually long and hard to remember).
then uncomment these linesCode:gedit .bashrc
i think that's how they look to start with, anyway they should look like this when you have finished and saved the fileCode:#if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then # . ~/.bash_aliases #fi
then create or make sure you have this file in your home directoryCode:if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then . ~/.bash_aliases fi
you can check by doing this when you first open bash, or your commmand line programCode:.bash_aliases
if it's not there just make the fileCode:ls -a
lol, i only wanted to ask if anyone could show me some good aliases not write a tutorial i hope someone shows me some now thanks.Code:gedit .bash_aliases
if everything i have written is correct and there isn't already a tutorial about enabling aliases and there's no easier way maybe i'll submit as a howto.
