    date format in command history

    hi,

    I am working on a Kali Linux 2022.4 64 bit VM


    in root,
    if I add in the /etc/bash.bashrc file the line:
    export HISTTIMEFORMAT='%x %T '
    use it,
    if I likewise add this line in the file:
    home/user/.bash.rc


    no date appears after a:
    >history


    It works on Debian;
    Why doesn't it work here in Kali Linux?


    thanks

    because if you want to use that file location, home/user/.bashrc you need to add it to your $PATH
    clearly Debian adds it, and and Kali doesn't
