  lib: 437 Shell: fish v: 3.3.1 default: Bash v: 5.1.8
  running-in: alacritty inxi: 3.3.06

From what I found by searching some relative topics, garuda use bash as default shell and fish. In my user's directory I have .bashrc, .bashrc_garuda and .zshrc. From my understanding .zshrc is there in case someone change the shell to zsh and isn't used by default, also .bashrc(which has only some basic confg) doesn't used and replaced by .bashrc_garuda on login to lxqt because of the relative autostart command.
I have some questions about bashrc though.

  1. Can I edit the .bashrc_garuda to add some stuff there or is somehow autogenerated?
  2. There is an alias command there with name "helpme" which outputs "command not found" when I try to run it. Do I need to install an extra package?
  3. I also have .bash_history file which have some commands I used previously, but they don't appear it alacritty and when run some other only. I suppose there is a history from fish, but I'm pretty sure I could access them before, and also I couldn't find a history file in .config/fish directory so where this other commands stored. I haven't touch any of those files or change anything relative to terminal, except alacritty's config to change the font size.
  1. yes
  2. no ?
find . -iname '*fish*' | grep history

  1. thanks
  2. This alias is for command: --shell

for this I asked if need a package to be installed. I just now tried to run the script "" though and I found that there is an aur package in chaotic-aur repo. I installed it and works, but still the alias "helpme" doesn't run it.
3. Sorry about that, I should check .local/share too but it didn't cross my mind because usually user config related files are in user's directory or in .config directory.

find-the-command: "" is not found locally, searching in repositories...

"" may be found in package "chaotic-aur/"

What would you like to do?
- (line 1):
function helpme --wraps ' --shell' --description 'alias --shell'; --shell $argv; end
in function 'helpme'

Check /usr/bin/, I dont use it :slight_smile:

Ugh, this needs to be replaced. We ship tealdeer now :eyes:


I don't use it either :smiley:. I just show the alias and I wanted to see what it does and I get the error.

In autostart folder there is an entry "Initial bashrc setup" with the command:

mv ~/.bashrc_garuda ~/.bashrc; rm ~/.config/autostart/bashrc-setup.desktop

My .bashrc has only these contents:

# ~/.bashrc

# If not running interactively, don't do anything
[[ $- != *i* ]] && return

alias ls='ls --color=auto'
PS1='[\[email protected]\h \W]\$ '

So, seems that the command doesn't run. I know that I can just do the replacement manually but I mostly mentioned to check if there is a problem with it(at least in lxqt).
