Copying my dotfiles over. First the .aliases

[Terminal] Shorcut overview

Further shortcuts:

Ctrl-LCleans the screen
Ctrl-YPastes back the stuff erased by Ctrl-K or Ctrl-U
Ctrl-CAborts a application
Ctrl-ZSuspend a application. Resume it again by fg (resume in foreground) and bg (resume in background).
Use jobs if you have multiple suspended applications and use fg %# (where # is the job number) to get it back on screen or end it with kill %#.
Ctrl-Dis same as typing exit
Pos1like Ctrl-A
Endlike Ctrl-E
Ctrl-RSearch terminal history

Some of the shortcuts are also recognized by other applications, like Ctrl-U on Ubuntu’s graphical login screen.

[Shell] zsh-autosuggestions

Simple plugin to get autosuggestions from your history while typing in your Zsh shell. If you are using Oh My Zsh, the installtion is done in 3 steps. Look here.
Just grab the plugin:

git clone https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions ${ZSH_CUSTOM:-~/.oh-my-zsh/custom}/plugins/zsh-autosuggestions

Add it in your ~/.zshrc (zsh config):


And restart the terminal. Done.

[Shell] Zsh + Oh My Zsh + Powerlevel10k

Install Zsh (Shell)

sudo apt install zsh
chsh -s $(which zsh)

Logout and login back again to use your new default shell.

echo $SHELL

Expected result: /bin/zsh

Install Oh My Zsh (Zsh framework with tools and themes)

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

In addition I installed the Powerline Fonts:

apt-get install fonts-powerline

Restart your terminal to launch the Oh My Zsh configuration.
After the installation and configuration I usually add “neofetch | lolcat” at the end of my zsh config: ~/.zshrc

Install Powerlevel10K (Powerlevel10k is a theme for ZSH)

git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k.git ${ZSH_CUSTOM:-$HOME/.oh-my-zsh/custom}/themes/powerlevel10k

Set ZSH_THEME=powerlevel10k/powerlevel10k in your ~/.zshrc.

I also installed the patched Meslo Nerd Font and set it as terminal font. Else some icons will not be displayed in Powerlevel10k.
Restart your terminal and go through the configuration steps. The result will look similar to this:

Or like this:

Next you could install a Zsh plugin like: https://nocin.eu/shell-zsh-autosuggestions/
