Implementing Manual Configurations

When editing configuration files, you must of course conform to the standards of whatever files you modify. For instance, Linux startup scripts are usually written for bash. Therefore, they must use the syntax of a bash script, as summarized in Chapter 4, "Mastering Shells and Shell Scripting." In the case of distributions that use GUI configuration tools, it's also often important to create files or scripts that match those tools' expectations, lest subsequent uses of those tools create bizarre problems. You can change a configuration using the standard files or use local startup scripts to add to a configuration. It's also sometimes possible to achieve the desired results by creating or modifying individual users' configuration files.
