[Shell] Zsh + Oh My Zsh + Powerlevel10k

Install Zsh (Shell)

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

Log out 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 lunch 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 https://github.com/romkatv/powerlevel10k.git $ZSH_CUSTOM/themes/powerlevel10k

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

I also installed the patched Meslo Nerd Font and sat 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 simliar to this:

Path to Powerlevel10k config: ~/.p10k.zsh
