Just curious:

If I'm pasting the output of some terminal processes—like the various commands one goes through to make and install a certain driver or application—into the Ubuntu Pastebin, what syntax would one choose to make it the most readable?

You know, to make it clearer when the user has issued a command and when the computer is logging events.

Is there one that will make the output as pretty as it is in Terminal?

  • None, for me. No need to force highlighting where there's no common structure.

  • Thanks for your 2¢, @muru. I just ask for curiosity sake—wondering if there was an option that would keep that green ubuntu@ubuntu pleasant-looking and distinctive from the rest of the text.

1 Answer 1


Plain Text would be my choice as Syntax Highlighting is mostly used to tell apart distinct syntactical elements and the output of a command has none of these.
