ok, no problem, you can edit/create the file using the gedit text editor. You can find it under Accessories-->Text Editor, try opening the ~/.bashrc file (don't forget to enable hidden files in the file selector using Ctrl+H) don't worry if it isn't there, as I don't think Mint has it by default so just create the new file and save with the file-name .bashrc (or run "gedit .bashrc" from the terminal to do the same thing")
To actually create aliases all you need to do is add a line to the file like:
- Code: Select all
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
To add multiple aliases just add one per line. Save the file, and re-open the terminal (or a new tab) and try out the new command.
