I have setup
.bash_aliases and source that file in .zshrc and everything works as it should, for that user.
But if I try to use sudo and “tab” it wont search the aliases.
I also add a location to
.zshrc and THAT is fetched without problems with sudo.
If I use bash instead (with .bashrc) sudo finds my aliases just fine.
I have the
alias sudo='sudo ' thing in the aliases…
How do I get zsh to find my aliases as sudo?
(yes, I can add sudo in front of my aliases that needs it in
.bash_aliases but I rather not, besides, it works in bash, should be able to work in zsh aswell no?)
That could be an assumption - but you just demonstrated the opposite.
That leads one to think if there is a plugin zsh_completions like there is a plugin bash_completions
Writing this - I think the zsh completion is already there as part of manjaro-zsh-config.
Doing a quick check in Pamac
$ pamac info manjaro-zsh-config
Name : manjaro-zsh-config
Version : 0.26-1
Description : Zsh configuration for manjaro
URL : https://github.com/Chrysostomus/manjaro-zsh-config
Licenses : MIT
Repository : extra
Installed Size : 464,4 kB
Groups : --
Depends On : zsh-autosuggestions zsh-syntax-highlighting zsh-completions
zsh-history-substring-search zsh ttf-meslo-nerd-font-powerlevel10k
yes zsh-completions is a dependency for manjaro-zsh-config.
Can you point me in a direction of some documentation?
I have spent a couple of hours trying to solve this silly (yes it is very silly) problem for me. xD
Is it this?
Could be - although I would probably dive into how bash handles the alias.
Wait - wait … I think there is a zsh plugin for oh-my-zsh which is named alias.
The manjaro config builds upon elements from oh-my-zsh … found it - perhaps you can some ideas here
Or this is not what I am thinking it is - the phrase basedon the plugins you have enabled
shortcuts that are currently available based on the plugins you have enabled
In the list of plugins there is the alias-finder - maybe that is more in line of your needs.
I am not sure I am being helpful here
- I dropped zsh some time ago
- I was kind of fond of it for a while
- I don’t know why I started to dislike
- I was among those advocating a change to zsh for Manjaro
… but now … I find myself liking bash (and oh-my-bash) better.
Not sure if I should place the
plugins=(alias-finder) in my
~/.zshrc or in the config that is sourced (
I tried in
.zshrc but it did not change anything.
plugins=(aliases) I should be able to use
als in cli to “show all aliases by group”. The command is not found.
No idea what I should do, I guess “test different config files until I run out of ideas” is what I have to do first.
You pointed me in a direction and I thank you for that sir!
What I think you could try ,is to use the installer script for oh-my-zsh, and create a default install.
You need the oh-my-zsh environment, to actually use the plugin structure.
If I recall correctly - the script will backup your current .zshrc and create a new default.
In any case you can preserve your .zshrc by copying to a bak extension - it is easily restored.
Edit your .zshrc and add your desired theme and plugins.
It cannot be stressed enough, that one should not get carried away by the opportunities - too many active plugins make your shell a PIA.
Did you actually set up oh-my-zsh?
Thank you, I might look deeper into this.
I have not installed oh-my-zsh (did not understand that was a requirement, I thought I could change the manjaro-zsh configs or .zshrc)
But thank you, I will look into this, sometime, because as I said, it is a bit “silly”.
For now, I will complete my aliases then press home > sudo > space… Because this is outside what I know, but am willing to learn.
