ha! a linuxquestions blog. what will they think of next? i could tell you all about the times i spent dorking out, just trying to get my computer to an acceptable standard of workabiliy, but i'm tired and don't want to wake up face down on the keyboard. i hear the drool and such is not all that good for it. plus i don't want to walk around looking like i've got a keypad embedded in my face. anyway, i'd like to hope this nonsensical tinkering is over for a little while. sooner than later, i...

Turn on numlock at login

Here is how to have it turn-on when you log-in:

2. ln -s /usr/bin/numlockx ~/.kde/Autostart/numlockx

Color the shell prompt

Posted 02-23-2006 at 09:28 PM by w322

add to ~/.bashrc: export PS1="\e[32m\u@\H[\W]>\e[0m"

31=red
34=blue
35=purple
30=black

Is there such a thing?
