Run command in new gnome-terminal and .bashrc

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm trying to launch one command in a new gnome-terminal window from a shell script, and it seems that my .bashrc file doesn't get sourced when calling gnome-terminal and executing a command: gnome-terminal -t "my title" -e vim But it does when launching gnome-terminal alone: gnome-terminal -t "my title" (for testing purposes, just add a echo "something" to the end of the .bashrc) I also tried explicitly sourcing the .bashrc before running vim with no success: gnome-terminal -t "my title" -x $SHELL -c "source $HOME/.bashrc; vim" Am I missing something?
