  • Last Updated : 01 Jun, 2021

Sometimes we get bored with the normal Linux Terminal and feel like if we can customize the same, so we can use powerlevel10k for that. It is a theme for ZSH. It changes normal shell commands to colorful commands. To install powerlevel10k we need to install Oh My Zsh, both are open-source in GitHub. We can also use nerd font to make the powerlevel10k theme font more beautiful.

Install Oh My Zsh

To install Oh My Zsh open terminal and run

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

 If this curl installation method shows any error use wget method 



sh -c "$(wget -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh)"

powerlevel10k theme installation becomes easy if oh my zsh is installation successful. Just run these two commands.
