Gnome-terminal - how to show full current directory

Hello, good morning, do you know by chance a way to get the Terminal program (Gnome-terminal) to show the full-current-directory on its prompt?

What I mean is, instead of just showing for instance -

[root@LINUXROUTER conf]#

[root@LINUXROUTER /etc/httpd/conf]#
I know sometimes the path will get too long but I could live with that.

here you can find what you need... I suggest "\w" for your prompt
