    I think answer for Q6 isn’t fully correct.

    1. ~/.bashrc will run only if user shell is bash, and ~/.bashrc will run after ~/.bash_profile script if it present.
    2. Threre are a lot of scripts may run before ~/.profile script. At first /etc/profile, and then every script in /etc/profile.d/ directory.
    At fact ~/.bashrc and ~/.profile are the lastest files which called for user profile.

    There is a mistake (twice) in the question and answer about resolv.conf. The file is wrongly named resolve.conf instead of resolv.conf.

    • Avishek Kumar says:

      Thanks @ Yannic for pointing that out. libreoffice dictionary ammended it automatically from resolv.conf to resolve.conf.

      Anyway, It has been fixed in the article.
