Install fish terminal and set as the default terminal

linux/fish_terminal

Fish terminal is a great terminal. I was initially heisitant to try it but cnce I gave it a go I really liked it.

You should try it as well!

I particularly how it shows a type ahead for commands you have previously written! You can easily press right arrow to autocomplete the command you were writing! This is a big time saver.

Installation

Install using the following to ensure you get the lastest version of fish

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fish-shell/release-3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fish

Add the fish shell /usr/local/bin/fish to /etc/shells with:

echo /usr/local/bin/fish | sudo tee -a /etc/shells

Setting as default terminal

Change your default shell to fish with:

chsh -s /usr/bin/fish
