I want my prompt to display:
current (absolute) working directory, colored in green and
in a NEW line, the dollar sign and an empty space.
I am using this line in
export PS1='\e[0;32m$(pwd)\n\e[m$ '
So when in e.g.
Desktop, my prompt looks like this:
However, sometimes when hitting the up arrow to re-run previous commands, at the start of the prompt a random char sequence appear that does not seem to go away unless I hit enter, e. g.
I have never hit a
cd cd Desktop command. The weirdest part is that backspace won't even delete the first one of the two
cd commands above!
