This is embarrassing, but I don't seem to be able to set the command-prompt or the shell title. I'm using Gnome3 on centos 7.
I've added the following to ~/.bashrc:
export PS1="\w \$ "
The prompt stays the same:
echo $PS1 [\u@\h \W]\$
I've also tried updating the ~/.bashrc without the export:
PS1="\w \$ "
It is almost like something is overriding it.
As for the title I've tried the following:
echo -ne "\033]0;hi\007"
It doesn't take effect.
