Running a trial of LL on both a virtual machine and live boot, I cannot change the prompt. PS1="\$ " works on any other distribution I've used but not on LL. No error message, just no change. Even put it in .bashrc. I've checked shell and it is bash. Any ideas or is this a bug.
Currently using Mint 18.3, but seriously considering LL.

Hello dave61430,

it can be changed on desktop installed LL 3.2 , LL 4 series uses different terminal, maybe a member using 4 series can try also ?



^Here I backup default prompt, echo backup to check it is correct, change prompt to PS1="\$ ", run cal to show new prompt holds after additional command, then restore to the backup of default prompt.

I use no computer in work, I am just a home user, at beginner/learning Linux stage.
Trying to join in with community and assist where it may be possible :)
