Mac Terminal error: -bash: /Users/tim/.profile: No such file or directory

finder keeps popping up mac
mac finder crashing repeatedly
search function not working in finder mac
mac search not showing all files missing
finder not showing up
mac finder not responding
force quit finder on mac

Every time I open a new Terminal window I see the following.

-bash: /Users/tim/.profile: No such file or directory

I have no idea why this is happening or where to look to fix it; my profile is located at /Users/tim/.bash_profile not /Users/tim/.profile

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

This happened to me as well and I noticed that at the top of my .bash_profile it had:

source ~/.profile

My understanding is that on MacOS / OS X .bash_profile is given priority over .profile so the latter file isn't required.

To fix therefore I simply removed source ~/.profile from the top of the file.

Hope that helps.

Edit: original poster commented that he just created a blank .profile to solve this as well.

I met the same issue today, i guess it's because i use the cleaning app and the app considered this file was a waste of space so deleted it. touch ~/.profile helps me.

Simply open .bash_profile file and comment on the first line.

in my case

source ~/.profile
export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"


#source ~/.profile
export PATH="/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"

Another way you just create the file in same folder where .bash_profile exists.

But the first one is good if you don't need .profile for any purpose
