  1. Set-up Powerline. See microhobby site. (Disable conda and install globally.)

a. sudo apt-get install python3-pip

b. sudo pip3 install powerline-status

c. sudo apt-get install fonts-powerline

Add to ~/.bashrc:

# load powerline
if [ -f `which powerline-daemon` ]; then
    powerline-daemon -q
if [ -f /usr/local/lib/python3.10/dist-packages/powerline/bindings/bash/ ]; then
    source /usr/local/lib/python3.10/dist-packages/powerline/bindings/bash/

(Remember Change python version in ~/.bashrc entry to current global Python version of system.)

  1. Install ruby-dev (dev channel of Ruby) via apt.
sudo apt install ruby-dev
  1. Install colorls via gem. Use elevated permissions if installing via gem fails.
sudo gem install colorls
