Do I need bash profile? installed, do I still need to the bash?

Hi, I already have ruby 1.9.3, 2.0 & 2.1.1 plus rails 4.1 (and git, rvm), do I still need to do the bash profile, touch etc? Thanks , Guru

You will need to tell bash your user info the first time you set it up, yes. Touch is not something that should need to be set up.

Thanks Andrew, right now I'm about finish two RoR tutorials so have set up rvm, ruby, rails, git, heroku etc, so was wondering if I still needed to do the bash steps as I don't remember the other teachers mentioning this step.

hello, just to clarigy so I don't install the wrong tools. I already have homebrew, ruby 2.1.1 (other version also in case I want I can choose with rvm), git hub account, heroku etc. Do I need to set up the bash profile? And I don't need rbenv as I have rvm I presume? Please let me know, thanks, Guru.
