I am currently using Zsh + Prezto for my scripting shell configuration. I have been using the
sorin theme but am a little dissatisfied with it. I'd like to switch to the paradox theme!
It is supposed to look like this:
I'm having some trouble doing that. When I switch to the theme, the symbols aren't able to load, so I get a prompt that looks like this:
Notice the boxed question marks where there should be an edge border for the background or a branch symbol for the git branch. (Take a look at the
paradox theme preview here).
I've seen here that I should install Powerline patched fonts for the symbols to load in correctly. However, as I'm somewhat unfamiliar with the process, I would love some help installing it into my Linux machine.
In the documentation, it notes I should install via
pip. When I run
pip install --user powerline-status, my prompt is still unable to display the symbols the way it should look.
What else must I do, after running the installation, to display this prompt correctly?
