Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-05-01 08:31:20 UTC
Per discussion in:

VTE upstream thinks we should source /etc/profiles.d/*.sh content always (login and non-login shells) as Fedora does to easily recover "open tab in previous directory" feature

Not sure if would be possible to do that :/

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2013-05-02 01:35:12 UTC
that's not going to happen.  profile.d is for login shells only, end of story.

i've debated adding bashrc.d in the past, but never had a compelling use case.  i also vaguely recall there being other aspects, but it's been so long that i can't really remember.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-05-02 07:32:18 UTC
Well, bashrc.d could also help I think, but will explain this to upstream as other people from other distributions different than Fedora are also complaining. Will keep you informed

Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-05-11 07:33:05 UTC
They don't like the idea because other shells (like zsh) would need to run scripts from bashrc.d dir :/

bashrc.d patch

Here's my patch to add bashrc.d support. If nobody has a better idea, I'll commit it today. Otherwise, please provide this better idea since people want completions to work *this* year.
Comment 5 Leho Kraav (:macmaN @lkraav) 2014-11-09 13:08:34 UTC
I can't tell for sure if you are already considering this to be needed in /etc/bash/bashrc

# Login shell, avoid duplicate profile.d run
shopt -q login_shell && return
for sh in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
    [ -r "$sh" ] && . "$sh"
unset sh

Otherwise we're gonna be running profile.d stuff twice on login shell.

Comment 7 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2014-11-10 09:05:18 UTC
So now app-shells/bash-completion-2.1-r92 blocks against all previous versions of bash, including bash-3.2* and bash-4.2* which are the official versions used in ebuilds. Changes of that scope should be discussed in -dev.

Reopening and CCing QA.
