comment Difference between .bashrc and .bash_profile
@Gilles I don't understand why you claim this. With .$HOME/.bashrc as Rich showed above, settings in .bashrc will be available in login shells, and thus the desktop environment as well. For example, on my Fedora system, gnome-session is started as -$SHELL -c gnome-session, so .profile is read.

comment script to convert ext4 filenames to ntfs
pathchk may help. It doesn't do the conversion, but should tell you if a file needs converting.

You don't need g+s on the files, you need g+w on the files and g+ws on the directories.
