I want to have a promt that changes colour depending on the user that logs in.
I have added the following to the /etc/skel.bashrc and my other users
if [ "$USER" == "root" ]; then
this works great through putty but when using a gui the font changes
to grey which is hard to read, this is due to the ansi color 37m, how
can I add a check to see if I am using a putty terminal session or an
X terminal session?
Any one got any other great tips for changing the prompt?
