I did

r00t@wutdo~$ alias daoc='mono "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/DAoC/Portal.exe"'
r00t@wutdo~$ daoc

Works fine and dandy but after reboot the alias isn't saved.

r00t@wutdo:~$ alias
alias alert='notify-send --urgency=low -i "$([ $? = 0 ] && echo terminal 
|| echo error)" "$(history|tail -n1|sed -e '\''s/^\s*[0-9]\+\s*//;s/[;&|]\s*
alias egrep='egrep --color=auto'
alias fgrep='fgrep --color=auto'
alias grep='grep --color=auto'
alias l='ls -CF'
alias la='ls -A'
alias ll='ls -alF'
alias ls='ls --color=auto'

How can I set a permanent alias?

Put it in ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_aliases depending on your setup (or .zshrc, etc).

To edit the .bashrc file you can follow the below steps.

ls -al .bashrc >>> vi .bashrc end of the file enter the alias command :wq >>> to save and exit the VI editor then run source ~/.bashrc
