Do you mean the .bash_profile?

It looks like this (I copied it from my old computer):

if [ -f "${HOME}/.bashrc" ] ; then
  source "${HOME}/.bashrc"
fi

# Set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "${HOME}/bin" ] ; then
  PATH="${HOME}/bin:${PATH}"
fi

# Set MANPATH so it includes users' private man if it exists
# if [ -d "${HOME}/man" ]; then
#   MANPATH="${HOME}/man:${MANPATH}"
# fi

# Set INFOPATH so it includes users' private info if it exists
# if [ -d "${HOME}/info" ]; then
#   INFOPATH="${HOME}/info:${INFOPATH}"
# fi

if [ -f ~/.git-completion.bash ]; then
  . ~/.git-completion.bash
fi

mount C: /c/
alias ghci=ghcii.sh

export LFTP_PASSWORD=*****

It looks like this:

BoldAsFont=no
FontHeight=20
RightClickAction=paste
Font=Courier New

Also check if you have an /etc/minttyrc which may change settings, and

I don't have that file on my computer.

Thanks for all the help!
