its mind bogglingly supprising how hard it is to TOTALLY change terminal prompt graphic featurs.... Like
Or in my case color features.... I have edited /etc/bash.bashrc and ~/.bashrc and /root/.bashrc
For those who want a quick solution i recommend just editing this file
So type this command and reAd through the file
that file you just edited gets loaded every login. Or if you type the command "source ~/.bashrc" or ". ~/.bashrc"
Ok so after i did all that.... I STILL dont fully get color....
read test; $test
I type ls and get no color...
Or another example
Or another example, when i make an alias command
alias ls="ls -a"
the problem is command is being executed by shell, and NOT by me..?
How can i just change the output to color... Always ^.^ im guessing i can just copy paste that section about fancy color from .bashrc somewhere. But i swear.... Why is this so hard... On my ipad i could just smash my face and it would work. Or on microsoft i click ENABLE COLOR for cmd.exe ^.^
I really really really mean ALWAYS, i want to go program cool stuf f but customizing my terminal is hard O.o and i program in the terminal..... I have too.... Because
90% of what i program is in perl, and i grew up sshing into servers and writing perl with emacs or pico or vi. So when i code i want to code in my terminal, and i want the output in color. Its something i never had the option of before.
I have never owned linux until now....
