install zsh ubuntu 14.04 LTS

What I did is…

open ubuntu software center and install “Shell with lots of features” (the first one on top when search by “zsh”)

then did this (alternate way to install zsh) and, got “don’t have to” message.

then went to “oh-my-zsh” and follow the guides

$ git clone git:// ~/.oh-my-zsh
$ cp ~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc
$ chsh -s /bin/zsh 

reopen terminal and then… restart Ubuntu and then.

$ subl ~/.zshrc

open and edit this file…



plugins=(git rbenv gem bundler)

find themes

$ cd ~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/
$ ls

And I found those plugin names

$ cd ~/.oh-my-zsh/plugins
$ ls

And change font size little bigger… 16! (on Terminal “profile” menu) Yes, I did this today.
