I know it will go away when I type in

conda deactivate

but that is not it, I have also seen that my system has slowed down since I installed Anaconda. It was because of this, I have been fiddling with it just to get rid of slowdowns.

I downloaded it using

wget http://repo.continuum.io/archive/Anaconda3-2020.02-Linux-x86_64.sh

After downloading that I installed it in again by

supreetsingh@zeppelin:~/Downloads$ bash ./Anaconda3-2020.02-Linux-x86_64.sh

Changed the location of the install to

[/home/supreetsingh/anaconda3] >>> /home/supreetsingh/dodge/anaconda3

Did this

Do you wish the installer to initialize Anaconda3
by running conda init? [yes|no] 
[no] >>> no

Conda was installed and the command conda was working. I updated all the packages

supreetsingh@zeppelin:~/Downloads$ conda update --all

Did this to initialise conda

supreetsingh@zeppelin:~/Downloads$ conda init bash

After that, as the instructions asked me to run this command then I did this

supreetsingh@zeppelin:~/Downloads$ /home/supreetsingh/dodge/anaconda3/bin/conda shell.bash hook

Everything is working fine, I just want to remove the (base) that comes every time when I start the terminal and it is slowing down the terminal. Also would like to know if there is a better way to install Anaconda.

Just do after activating conda

conda config --set auto_activate_base false
