Home > bash > powerline-status

powerline-status

Problem:
Installing powerline-status

Solution:
1. pip install –user powerline-status
2. Add the following to .bashrc

if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ]; then
    PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"
fi

export POWERLINE_COMMAND=powerline
powerline-daemon -q

POWERLINE_BASH_CONTINUATION=1
POWERLINE_BASH_SELECT=1
REPOSITORY_ROOT=/home/rodnee/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
. ${REPOSITORY_ROOT}/powerline/bindings/bash/powerline.sh

3. Source .bashrc. It may give some errors. Open up a new terminal and see if the changes have taken effect.

$ source .bashrc
bash: /home/rodnee/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/powerline/bindings/bash/../../../scripts/powerline-config: No such file or directory
bash: /home/rodnee/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/powerline/bindings/bash/../../../scripts/powerline-config: No such file or directory

Note:
I could not get it to work with zsh. Opted for https://pseudoscripter.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/a-powerline-style-prompt-for-your-shell/ instead.
