A guide to setup and install oh my zsh with agnoster theme and working fonts like a pro on Chrome OS.
At the time of writing this, Linux on Chromebooks is in beta. To turn it on, head over to Settings, under Linux (beta) click on Turn On. It will take some time to install Linux.
By default Linux on Chrome OS doesn’t come with a password for sudo, we will set one up, as it is required to set zsh as the default shell.
Remember to change pushp.vashisht with your username. You will be prompted for password, provide one.
Change the ‘ZSH_THEME’ line 10 with ‘agnoster’ theme as below:
Save & exit.
Done! Oh my zsh is installed. Uh-Oh! the fonts aren’t getting displayed correctly as some of the symbols are missing. On any Linux distro installing powerline font via apt would have solved the problem, but, here it won’t.
Open a tab in chrome and hit `Ctrl + Alt + t`, a new tab with crosh will open up. Now, hit `Ctrl + Shift + p`, a new tab with Terminal settings will open up.
Now, head back to your Linux terminal and you should see the fonts getting displayed properly.
Now, the font should be working as expected!
