Hello everyone!

We have been investing plenty of personal time and energy for many years to share our knowledge with you all. However, we now need your help to keep this blog running. All you have to do is just click one of the adverts on the site, otherwise it will sadly be taken down due to hosting etc. costs. Thank you.

If you want to have colourful terminal screen then you can use zsh shell and oh-my-zsh framework. Follow steps below to install it.


Install zsh


At the end of the command below, it might say ".... doesn't exist" but you can ignore it.


$ sudo apt-get install zsh

Install oh-my-zsh


$ sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

Please look over the ~/.zshrc file to select plugins, themes, and options.

Changing themes


Find ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell" and change it with the theme you like.


$ sudo nano ~/.zshrc

Note


If you want to switch between "bash" and "zsh" shells, all you have to do is type either $ bash or $ zsh or $ exit.
