When I installed, I was asked for a name and gave a nice, short one:
dan. Thereafter, every time I bring up a terminal, it looks like this:
dan@dan-desktop:~$ locate tja42
How can I shorten this prompt? $ would work splendidly.
Then search for 'PROMPTING' (type: '/prompting' at the ':' prompt).
Then read what it says there.
(The 'man' command displays the manual page for the command you specify.
Type 'man man' for more informaion abou the man command itself.)

dan@dan-desktop:~$ locate bashrc[could only paste as quotation]
One of the 9,750,000 hits recommended that one change the first. I did
that, and now everything has gone wonky. Thunderbird keeps prompting me
for my new identity even though I've changed it back.
Does anyone know which bashrc to change?
