I got a mac laptop and have been using a home directory which is not under my name. After spending some time, I have set preferences and of course one day, I needed to change the home directory name to mine.
So I went into the users account settings, changed my home name, and moved the folder this way:
mv /Users/previous-name /Users/new-name
Everything worked fine, all my preferences are here, except for the terminal's. I tried to manually change the look and feel (with a theme, for instance the "Terminal > Preferences > Red Sands") but no change is taken into account. I still have black text with a white background.
I checked the
.bash_profile files and made sure the variable
$HOME was set instead of something like
Opening a new terminal tab or window, relogging and restarting don't change anything.
Any thoughts, hints on how to solve that?
