Need help with ZSH. I'd like to see if I could get my old set-up back, please. :)

Hello everyone!

I have been using Garuda Linux for about six months now. I love it as I was using Manjaro prior to that, and I feel that this is just a distribution that's been done better. Nothing against people who prefer Manjaro; some people like apples, others oranges.

I have a few questions about configuring ZSH to be the way that I want it to be. It is inspired by this thread on the Manjaro forums (it is actually a very short and fairly good read in my opinion) and it is a set-up that I've used for a long time:

Some basic questions first, if I may!

First, I am showing you a picture of what loads when I open my terminal and then I am showing you that I have to manually type in 'zsh' in order to get powerlevel10k to appear. I would like to know if there is a simple piece of code that I could use to fix this in .zshrc?



In the first picture, you will notice that powerlevel10k does not appear. Again, it only shows up after I've typed 'zsh' into the terminal and I'd like to know how I could get powerlevel10k to show by default?

Okay, a second question if I may - I think it's a simple fix, but if I'm wrong I apologize:

That is from the GitHub page for powerlevel10k.

It has bars in it! :slight_smile:

I would like to know how I could get those if it is possible please.

(It does not give me the option during set-up.)

The ultimate set-up I am looking for is something like this (taken from that Manjaro thread, which again - was my old set-up) was something like this:


If I could get some help I would appreciate it greatly. I will upload my zshrc file to a service if I need to do so.

I really liked the tmux thing. I appreciate the work that has been done with programming zsh for Garuda (I really do) but I was wondering if I could get my old stuff back.

Thank you. :slight_smile:

and post

as text!

Even if you personally think it is unnecessary.

(oops, realized that was a terminal command....)
