How to open a japanese folder name in terminal.
For example, when i typed in:
There are several folders name in the current folder appears.
One of the folder is in japanese name, how do i open it without japanese input method ?
Is there #number that i can enter so that it will choose the japanese named folder or whichever folder is the number in sequence ?
Wow! Zsh shell is so featureful.
I just watch a youtube zsh vs bash. but the authur of the video only mention the part regarding ls and cd on files in zsh vs bash. He is able to run terminal one for bash and one for zsh shell. How can that be possible ?
Can i change the shell to zsh ? what should i know before change the shell ?
any different in the way zsh shell to bash that i should know , before diving in and regret or diving in and can’t use terminal anymore because the way to use z shell is not the same ? for that i am reading https://www.howtogeek.com/362409/what-is-zsh-and-why-should-you-use-it-instead-of-bash/, but just in case i rush through it and missed out something important.
how to switch between shells ? or like that guy , run 2 different shell simultaneously to try thing out.? or i should read up myself, less being complained for asking without searching in google. ]
$chsh is to change shell
Ok, i have got a lot to read on zsh shell. I am just afraid i waste to much time on it, because i don’t know how much should i know… i don’t need to know everything that an expert know… i just need to know what i need basicly. Just like bash shell, i am just using it basicly… i don’t do theme and stuff that might cause damage to my system.,not now.
Can someone tell me what i should read and what no need to read, so that i won’t be all over the place ? “all over the place” and get nothing done is my bad habit. bad habit which i am so pissed off. i admit it
One thing i also need to know (and afraid) is:
if i change to zsh shell, will what i learnt on bash shell no longer work on zsh ? and i have to relearn some of them ?
I think you should stick to Bash, until you get a bit more experience. You can just copy and paste the directory name, as @jonathon suggested.
To list the directories, select the directory name you wish to cd into, using the mouse, and then type
hit Space and press the middle mouse button to paste what is selected. Hit Enter.
And contrary to what other users suggested, I strongly advise you NOT to use oh-my-zsh. It’s absolute rubbish, in my opinion, which will only slow down your terminal. But more importantly, if you are going to use Zsh (which is an excellent shell), your should learn how to configure and customise it yourself. Of course, that’s just my opinion, you’re free to do whatever you want with your computer.
A shell is a program like any other. You can run it in the terminal. So if you install Zsh, you can run it from Bash (like @dalto suggests, by typing zsh), you don’t have to change the default shell using chsh. And when you’re done using Zsh, you can return back to Bash by typing exit.
Well can only speak for myself - but I started out with omz when I switched to zsh and it made everything easy in the beginning. The drawback was I added tons of plugins so everything ended up being very bloated - learned my lesson and second time I used only a few of the plugins and I can’t say I in anyway say regret I started with omz
Just to make me clear of what you said:
You meant if i have installed zsh and rebooted.
Now it is in Zsh, I can just type “bash” in zsh terminal and i can be in bash until i type exit ?
and vice versa ?
I am not going to install now, but want to be sure what i understand is correct.
