See my last reply. the lastlog stats will print for both TTY and SSH.
(From recollection, though, sshd's PrintLastLog is different from PAM's
lastlog printing.)

Anyways, no need to much about with bashrc. PAM itself prints the
lastlog if that module's loaded. I assume.

as for a desktop environment... that's a whole 'nother ballgame. You'd
want to hook into the messaging/notification system for the DE in that case.
