FASTEST procedure to update

You can also type “pksyua” (Arch Linux, ArcoLinux and AUR will be updated in one go)

skel

Check with meld if
.bashrc
and
.bashrc-latest
are the same
There may be new aliases

or say never mind
and use the alias

cb

New alias – cb or copy bash

 

We always compare 2 files after a skel

The working .bashrc and the newest .bashrc-latest are being compared and we get the new lines in.

There is now an alias to just copy/paste the one over the other.

After typing skel, you type cb and the .bashrc will be overwritten with the .bashrc-latest.
