Root's profile should be in ~/.profile.

Re: Setting root user profile

Hello periyasamy,

If you are saying the "root" -- superuser account, the default home direcotry is '/' -- the root directory of whole filesystem.

So put your customized configuration in the
'/.profile' and re-login to activate it. Hope this can help you.

Thanks
