Not the perfect answer, but it led to the answer.
Actually, /etc/bashrc should be sourced in ~/.bashrc and it was,
but I had missed creating /etc/bashrc in "The Bash Shell Startup Files",
and /etc/bashrc:
" # Provides prompt for non-login shells, specifically shells started
  # in the X environment."
