How to setup Starship Prompt and Zsh on Crostini
1 min read
Hey all! I made this guide after getting Starship successfully working on Bash, but zsh would refuse to accept the init script.
Step 0 - Set a custom password
This step is not required if you've already set a custom password for your Crostini container.
sudo passwd user, where
user is your username.
Step 1 - Install zsh and setting as default shell
...whether it be from your package manager of choice, or from source.
Then, simply run this command to add zsh's binary to
command -v zsh | sudo tee -a /etc/shells
Now, set it as your default shell:
chsh -s $(which zsh)
Step 2 - Install Starship Prompt
curl -fsSL https://starship.rs/install.sh | bash to start the installation.
To add Starship's init script to your .zshrc file, simply run one last command:
echo $(starship init zsh) >> ~/.zshrc
Congrats, you're done!
Enjoy your new beautiful and blazing fast prompt with the power of Rust and zsh!
