KDE Plasma Terminal behavior similar to GNOME possible?

Hi together,

I use Manjaro Gnome on my notebook and the KDE Plasma on my workstation. Finally I like the KDE Plasma much more. One thing I love in GNOME is the terminal. Especially the behavior when I enter commands. The input turns green when it is found…

Is there a way to add this to the standard KDE terminal? Especially to me - as an unexperienced user - this could be extremely helpful.




Gnome uses zsh while KDE Plasma is still using bash
You can switch if you want, or you can only use it when you want by invoking zsh in terminal, but you will have to do this

to default to zsh
chsh -s /usr/bin/zsh

or to switch back to bash
chsh -s /usr/bin/bash


And Gnome ships several zsh related packages such as zsh auto-suggestions, auto-completions, Manjaro zsh config…

Zsh alone won’t mimic the same behaviour, you’ll have to install the same packages in KDE.

Oh and reproduce the same ~/.zshrc content if the current Gnome’s suits you.


Thank you very much for your answers. This helps a lot. Now everything is much clearer :slight_smile:


Actually, those are all pre-installed in Manjaro KDE too. :slightly_smiling_face:
