    My aliases are not loaded in kali 2021

    Hi,
    I've tried numerous ways and numerous file but i must be missing something.
    I can't figure where to place my .bash_alaises file.
    It is simply not read.
    Even placing a simple "echo" in either .bashrc or .profile is not echoed.
    So which file is always loaded in a terminal?

    Thanks

    It's probably because the default is now Zsh. Ever since the 2020-4 release the default shell is Zsh.

    https://www.kali.org/blog/kali-linux-2020-4-release/

    Type
    Code:
    echo $SHELL
    to see whether your shell is bash or Zsh

    If it's Zsh then you need to add your aliases to the .zshrc file instead of the .bashrc file.

    HTH,

    Robert
