Development > Scripting and Bash

Need some scripting help



LS_COLORS=$LS_COLORS:'di=0;36:fi=0;37' ; export LS_COLORS
#terminal prompt
 export PS1='\[\e[1;31m\]\u @ \h \w ->\n\[\e[1;36m\] \@ \d \$\[\e[m\] '
This is a line from my .bashrc file which produces a double line prompt with time and date underneath in cyan and the user name hostname in red

hope this is more useful to your script request

cheers mike

This can be done from the terminal menu
edit ....preferences
click on foreground and choose your colour
ok  saves it

hope this helps

I'm using the following command line to make my username in light red.

export PS1="\[\e[1;31m\][\[email protected]\h\w]\$ \[\e[0m\] "

When I try to make my change permanent in the .bashrc file, it just screws it up. What should I enter into the .bashrc file?

old command:
export PS1="\[\e[1;31m\][\[email protected]\h\w]\$ \[\e[0m\] "
