Change bash prompt colour

Postby CaptainMark on Fri Dec 02, 2011 7:11 pm

This is silly but the bright green prompt which is default in linux mint's terminal really annoys me (My desktop looks slick and cool all except that garish blob of green), Ive done some googling but I cant figure out how to change it, I've got an feeling ratting around in the rusty parts at the back of my brain that I can change the prompt by modifying a file in the home folder, (poss. .bashrc?? Not sure....) Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Appreciate any help
Regards

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

~/.bashrc is the business end of that relationship. :P
