View Full Version : Execute commands at user login

4th September 2007, 07:35 PM
Hi! What file do I have to edit to add a few commands to be runned at each user login and/or logout ? I wanna add some mount commands for a few partitions to be mounted under that user so I can have rw access. If other ideas about this please share.

/home/user/.bashrc will run when you log in.
/home/user/.bash_logout will run when you log out.

Best would be to check the man page of you shell (bash, zsh etc) as the files which are read and executed before login and logout are usually defined in them.

any file that gets executed no matter which user logs in or out?
