Change the prompt in the system console plugin?
Submitted by kmogli on Thursday, 10 July, 2014 - 23:05
The default prompt (current working directory) is sometimes long and leaves no room on the command line. I would prefer to change the prompt to something minimal (like '$' on Linux or '>' on my Windows system). Seems there would be an easy way to do this, but I can't find it. Can anyone help?

Console plugin hasn't an option to change the promt. But possibly console plugin doesn't create the prompt, but uses the shell's setting. In this case You could try to change the shell (maybe in "Plugin Options -> Console -> System Shell -> Shell Prefix")

Also, You could file a feature request at sourceforge .
