BASH Prompt

Recommended Posts

Lets be honest, everyone at some point has to dive into the shell under Linux. It could be a rather boring and annoying trip if your shell prompt is just:

znx $

 

Not only is that unhelpful its *YAWN* So how to spice it up .. well simple, take a look at moveax's quick introduction into how to do it.

 

Mine is rather simple looking at the moment:

mark@tone ~ %

 

The first bit is simply, my username at the hostname. Then the current working directory.

 

Hrrrm, time to spice it up again I think :)

His tutorial looks very, very familiar! I wonder where he got that idea! <_>
