I am using iTerm2 in Mavericks OSX and made sure I updated to the latest version. My working directory inside preferences is set to Home Directory.
I was watching a tutorial on iTerm customization and this author I was listening to managed to have this scripts run automatically every time he just saves (":wq") out of Vim editor.
I am new to the Mac so I literally wasted a few hours trying to figure why my iTerm wasn't updating its color. It turns out I have to type "source .bash_profile" also.
From the video, the author taught how to download and install iTerm, typed "sudo vim .bash_profile" and pasted a script. I am sure there were not changes to the preferences other than the default. Did I miss something?
