Enable Colorful Terminal in Debian and Ubuntu

By | 2013/07/08

Debian and Ubuntu both disable colors in the terminal by default. I’ll show you how to turn on colors for the terminal!


Edit the file .bashrc in your home directory:

$ vim .bashrc

Uncomment the line that says ‘force_color_prompt=yes’ then logout and back in, or type the following:

source ~/.bashrc
01_color_prompt 02_color_prompt

Done!
