My Linux shell configuration is used exclusively with Cmder and WSL; I've included some basic installation and setup instructions here.
Run the following in your WSL shell (the
bash::Ubuntu task from my Cmder config):
sudo apt install zsh chsh -s $(which zsh)
Restart your shell (closing and re-opening the Cmder tab is sufficient) and you should be greeted with a configuration page. Choose option
0, and then enter the following:
curl -Lo install.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh sh install.sh
Below is my
~/.zshrc configuration (comments in-line):
export PATH=$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH export ZSH="/home/jackw/.oh-my-zsh" ZSH_THEME="agnoster" # Windows is case-sensitive CASE_SENSITIVE="true" plugins=(git ssh-agent) # Use with caution, you need to trust the servers # you connect to if you have this on and enabled zstyle :omz:plugins:ssh-agent agent-forwarding on source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh # Used by git automatically, so needs to be something # basic and in-console export EDITOR='vim' # I use Visual Studio Code - Insiders but I'm used to # "code" being on my path alias code="code-insiders"
If you already have a private
id_rsa key in your Windows user
.ssh folder, you can copy it to your WSL user folder to seamlessly make use of it there too:
# Assuming you are in # your Windows user folder mkdir ~/.ssh cp .ssh/id_rsa ~/.ssh/ chmod 400 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Restart your console or run
source ~/.zshrc and the key should be read in.
