i'am on parrot OS, after a forced restart my mate-terminal begun showing text from bashrc every time it started, after a "clear" it goes away and the prompt is properly colored and everything is functional. i checked bashrc and there is nothing wrong with it. i don't know where did this came from.

here is the text shown :

\]\342\224\214\342\224\200\$([[ \$? != 0 ]] && echo \"[\[\]\342\234\227\[\]]\342\224\200\")[$(if [[ ${EUID} == 0 ]]; then
    echo '\[\]root\[\]@\[\]\h';

└──╼ $

i don't know if it's relevant but it also started making a sound when it starts. the same sound as pressing backspace with nothing to delete :P

thanks for your help.

    Show your .bashrc, there clearly is something wrong with it.

Look for the first occurrence of if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then and tell that code not to run. Delete it, comment it, test for = no, whatever. The symptom should disappear.

Having isolated the bug, now come back and fix the quoting, or perhaps simplify the logic. It is currently a bit of a mess, as written.


You may find that $ set | grep PS1 is helpful for obtaining some correctly quoted text that you can paste back into an editor.
