I've been using Cygwin at home for quite a while. I have my "rxvt" icon set
to execute this:
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -bg beige -sr -ls -sl 1000
I have both home and work set the same way, except I'm loading the "Andale
Mono" font at home. At home, when this executes, it executes bash and uses
my $HOME/.bashrc and $HOME/.bash_profile. I can tell because it comes up
with my login prompt.
At work, however, it seems to only have executed "/etc/profile", because the
prompt is as it is set in there. It never appears to execute my .bashrc or
.bash_profile. If I then execute "bash" at the prompt, that all loads
I installed the latest Cygwin at work on Tuesday. I think I may have
updated my Cygwin at home a couple of days before that.
What sort of things could cause these differences?
