Help if you would please

Recommended Posts

Hi again, I updated Ubuntu Ibex to Jaunty that's all good now but my terminal now has two lines above the, user@ubuntu:~$

 

I have not seen this at any other time, then again I know little about Linux apart from its called the hackers tool? and it runs the internet, right?

 

 

my terminal after opening

 

bash: /home/user/.bashrc: line 102: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'

bash: /home/user/.bashrc: line 103: syntax error: unexpected end of file

 

user@ubuntu:~$ any advice on what to do, thanks robbin itall

Linux isn't a hacker's tool any more than Windows is. Linux is an Operating System, which means it can be used for any purpose. If you upload a copy of your bashrc I will look at it and tell you what the problem is.

Thanks for the reply, being Very new to this I know Very little about Linux and I learn as I go, so, gedit .bashrc

 

then this is the file mate.

###My Aliases

#open bashrc

alias ebrc="nano ~/.bashrc

 

 

And thanks again in advance.

There is a simple fix here, see at the very end of the bashrc:

 

###My Aliases
#open bashrc
alias ebrc="nano ~/.bashrc

 

You are missing the closing quote on that alias. SO it should be:

 

###My Aliases
#open bashrc
alias ebrc="nano ~/.bashrc"

 

Save and there will no longer be any complaints.
