Changing Your Terminal Profile
00:00 Before we keep going with this, because some of you might see that this is kind of small letters and that they kind of work fine when I’m just working on them on my own, but sometimes you want to present stuff, like I guess I’m doing right now, and it’s nice to show things a little bit bigger or maybe in different colors.
So I’ll just point out that the standard terminal on Linux comes with the option of adding profiles. There is the
Unnamed profile that kind of comes from default.
And then here I have added a profile I just call
realpython, which is a nicer thing for presentation. You can see it kind of changed colors a little bit, and it increased the font size and things like this. Perfect. That’s better for now.
So that’s a good view to start the tasks now. You already showed with
pwd, you can see where you are in the terminal. Usually that’s the same for everyone, right?
00:52 So unless you have customized your terminal in some way, you will always start in your user directory. Yes, there are options to kind of start a terminal in different places, but typically, if you just open a terminal, it’ll be in your home directory. Okay, cool.
