I'm new to both zsh and askubuntu, so please be gentle. :)
I'm going through this tutorial and have gotten stuck on the section "Changing Oh-My-ZSH Theme". I can apply the theme by editing my .zshrc and changing ZSH_THEME to my desired theme (wuffers), and some things change, like what shows up as soon as I create a new terminal (the first line, not sure what it's called). The little arrow will change to a smiley face, or some other little symbol. But the colors, background, and font never change, so when I "ls", the font and color is the same every time. I've checked via "echo $ZSH_THEME", and that gives me back what I applied (wuffers).
Here is a list of everything that I've tried:
- Sourcing my .zshrc file
- Setting theme to random and trying out several in a row to see if wuffers in particular is funky (which it wasn't isolated, it happened for every theme I tried)
- Removing my extra syntax highlighting plugin at the end of the file
- Completely wiping out my .zshrc file and starting from scratch
I found this issue on the GitHub page where it seems their issue was solved, but I'm not sure what exactly they meant by package ("apt-get remove grml-zsh-config"?). So it very well may be the answer to my problem.
I'm running up-to-date Ubuntu 18.04.2.
The only plugin I have right now is git (and I've tried removing it to see if it made any difference - it didn't).
Here is my .zshrc file:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
