Suggestion: Terminal customization

Asked by Alessio L. on 2011-01-11

What about inserting a tab to customize the terminal (.bashrc file)?

Something like edit the title shown:

# If this is an xterm set the title to user@host:dir
case "$TERM" in
xterm*|rxvt*)
    PS1="\[\e]0;Terminal @ \w\a\]$PS1" # For Example
    ;;
*)
    ;;
esac

Enable/Disable colors and entries selection:

if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else
    PS1='$: ' # For Example
fi

And greeting message:

*Add as last line*echo "MESSAGE"

that would be nice.

Thanks in advance

Alex
