What does your prompt look like?

Postby hash » 2007-04-25 16:46

Should be easier than posting your dektop screen shots :)

I use tcsh.
Cant like without (Alt+/) completion.
Code: Select all
set prompt = "`\hostname`|%B%T%b|%C|>"
if(`whoami` == root) then
    set prompt = "`\hostname`|%B%T%b|%C|%B#"
endif

which gives a prompt like:
Code: Select all
machine|9:43|user|>


and,, 'green on black' is a passion :)
and.. Eterm

I've never bothered to change my shell from the default setup, except for changing the colors. I usually have either black background with white letters, or black background with green letters.

I collect C Shells by the C shore :oops:
for those interested in shell scripts check out these two threads
in General Questions it's stickied Can't open my zip files the title doesn't describe the posts inside the thread.

I've been using tcsh for a while now, and I'm in love with it.

I use plain white and black, I'm a little boring in that respect.

Bash is an sh-compatible shell that incorporates useful features from the Korn shell (ksh) and C shell (csh)
So basically it's better than plain sh. But I don't use ksh/csh stuff so just sh will do.

Using bash with the default debian prompt, out of complete and total laziness. My GNU screen statusline is kinda cool though *smug*

My prompt is setup like this:

Code: Select all
PS1="[\!-\u@\H-\w]"


which gives a prompt like this:

[2630-sleepy@testbox-/opt/sfw]

It's a bit long, but it gives all the pertinent information. :)

And I use a transparent mrxvt (<--- best terminal ev-ar! :-P) with gray text on a black wallpapered background.
