Powerline not displaying

#1

Hello everyone! Really enjoying exploring this distro. Unfortunately I ran into some issues trying to get powerline to display in urxvt bash.

I followed the install guide at the arch wiki here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Powerline#Installation

I’ve also tried pointing to the /usr/lib/python folder in my bashrc rather than /usr/share and that yielded the same result.

Is there something I am missing? Any help would be appreciated.

zsh is the default shell in ArchLabs; did you change that to bash?

Or, have you set up powerline for both bash and zsh?

I found using this community bash-it repo set up powerline nicely when i tried it out.

Yes I chose bash during install, neofetch also shows that the current shell is bash.

This seems interesting I may have to try this if I cannot find another solution.

Maybe it’s a question of color rendering in URxvt, try and edit a little more your .bashrc:

export TERM=“rxvt-unicode-256color”

and your .Xresources:

URxvt*termName: rxvt-unicode-256color

logout, login

Likely conflicting with the default configs, comment everything in your bashrc from the PS1=...... to the #neofetch lines, or do

sed -i '37,51d' ~/.bashrc   # removes lines referencing default configs
rm -r ~/.bash   # remove default configs
