as far i understood, in /etc, .profile gets 1. sourced as login shell
then if its again spawned its 2. the bash.bashrc

so i liked both to this shell-rc, for the $i check

i use wmaker, for windows, simple, not much bloat, much outdated old
i start urxvt by -bg black -fg white

so do you say
those bashes in those xterms, they never did read the /etc's ?
cause yea the term doesnt look also, also doesnt include the +kw
function for example
why bla :p

oh thats why i need to link shell-rc to /root/ {the two files} ? i
dont remember missing the my-prompt on windows but this new $i and no
files in ~/ for /etc only seems as you see to fail
