Re: .bashrc not called for non-interactive ssh sessions

I'm not totally sure what you're asking...  My shell in /etc/passwd is
/bin/bash.  Just in case I copied the /etc/defaults/profile to
/etc/profile and added a check if that even gets called.

/etc/profile *doesn't* get called with a non-interactive ssh which is
the correct behavior - only the users ~/.bashrc should be called.

I reinstalled the service just in case there was something strange
there (like being set to allow service to interact with desktop) - but
still no luck...

So if you put some echo command in your .bashrc and then run ssh
localhost pwd, you see it?
