Whenever I do a "cd" at the Konsole, I get a warning msg

(echo: Command not found.

I think this happens because Konsole tries to output the path to the new directory, but instead of doing echo $cwd, I've done (echo $cwd. Now, I dont remember where I did this. Its not in my .cshrc, nor in my .cshrc_user file. Where else should I look for it? It'll also be fine if I can just turn off this feature, but how can I do that? Thanks

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Maybe it's in .login? – Barmar Mar 7 '13 at 7:19
What's your shell? Does \cd work? Is this a Linux system or have you installed KDE on a Unix box? – terdon Mar 7 '13 at 11:54

Check to see what is in your PS1 variable.

You can try something like this in your home directory to find which file you modified it with:

grep PS1 .[a-zA-Z0-9]*

I personally like to use:

export PS1="\\\${PWD}
\`/usr/xpg4/bin/id -un\`@\`uname -n\`$ "

The location of the "id" executable might be different for you. Try this to find out where it is:

type id

You need one that takes the parameters "-un"
