Neofetch not opening

Hello, So i wanted Neofetch to open automatically when i open terminal, so i read some tutorials and added Neofetch in .bashrc. But it seems that it doesn’t work, i checked that i configured bash as the shell. How can i make neofetch open up in terminal automatically?t

What shell you use and what you put in ~/.bashrc?

i used bash, and i manually put ‘neofetch’ inside .bashrc

Hi @Cryptos70928,

Are you sure you’re using bash and not zsh?

To check, open a terminal and run:

echo $SHELL

AFAIK the default, at least for KDE is zsh and should output:

$ echo $SHELL

yep i definetely use bash, i checked with echo $SHELL and it says bash

did you source your .bashrc?
run source ~/.bashrc

Do you use Konsole or other terminal emulator? If Konsole check what you have in Konsole’s profile.

Have you reloaded the ~/.bashrc file?

source ~/.zshrc

Or reboot.

yep i just tried now…

when i ran it, it came up as zsh:command not found but on neofetch it says bash…

Are you sure it’s installed?

pamac install neofetch

yep its installed

What is the output for:

which neofetch


And if you run neofetch manually?


neofetch comes up as normal

OK. So if you’re using bash, it seems you have a typo in your ~/.bashrc file. Please obtain it with, and provide the output of:

cat ~/.bashrc

Set colorful PS1 only on colorful terminals.

dircolors --print-database uses its own built-in database

instead of using /etc/DIR_COLORS. Try to use the external file

first to take advantage of user additions. Use internal bash

globbing instead of external grep binary.

Bash won’t get SIGWINCH if another process is in the foreground.

Enable checkwinsize so that bash will check the terminal size when

it regains control. #65623 (E11)

shopt -s checkwinsize

shopt -s expand_aliases

export QT_SELECT=4

Enable history appending instead of overwriting. #139609

shopt -s histappend
