    Hoping to not be offtopic

    In the past I used a lot of aliases. It looks like there is no way to setup an alias while having /bin/sh as the env. So today I switched it to bash, it does work. Is there any reason to not have aliases in /bin/sh? Or am I simply missing something?

    jbxvt terminal emulator: adding WM_CLASS and increasing/changing font?
