themes not displaying properly (zsh + oh my zsh +Terminator)

I am unable to get the themes working on zsh, while it seems for a lot of people this worked right out of the box.
I have tried several themes and they only display some elements of the theme but not all, for example, the lambda theme:

(I'm trying to post images but I don't know how to upload them from my pc.)

basically the prompt functions like showing the time, or what user you are, etc. are not showing up at all, neither is the color scheme of the theme being applied to the terminal.
It shows details like the lambda symbol or a '~' but not the entirety of the prompt.

here is my ~/.zshrc

# If you come from bash you might have to change your $PATH.
# export PATH=$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH

# Path to your oh-my-zsh installation.
ZSH=/usr/share/oh-my-zsh/

# Set name of the theme to load. Optionally, if you set this to "random"
# it'll load a random theme each time that oh-my-zsh is loaded.
# See https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/wiki/Themes
ZSH_THEME="lambda"

# Uncomment the following line to use case-sensitive completion.
# CASE_SENSITIVE="true"

# Uncomment the following line to use hyphen-insensitive completion. Case
# sensitive completion must be off. _ and - will be interchangeable.
HYPHEN_INSENSITIVE="true"

# Uncomment the following line to disable bi-weekly auto-update checks.
DISABLE_AUTO_UPDATE="true"

# Uncomment the following line to change how often to auto-update (in days).
# export UPDATE_ZSH_DAYS=13

# Uncomment the following line to disable colors in ls.
# DISABLE_LS_COLORS="true"

# Uncomment the following line to disable auto-setting terminal title.
# DISABLE_AUTO_TITLE="true"

# Uncomment the following line to enable command auto-correction.
ENABLE_CORRECTION="true"

# Uncomment the following line to display red dots whilst waiting for completion.
# COMPLETION_WAITING_DOTS="true"

# Uncomment the following line if you want to disable marking untracked files
# under VCS as dirty. This makes repository status check for large repositories
# much, much faster.
# DISABLE_UNTRACKED_FILES_DIRTY="true"

# Uncomment the following line if you want to change the command execution time
# stamp shown in the history command output.
# The optional three formats: "mm/dd/yyyy"|"dd.mm.yyyy"|"yyyy-mm-dd"
# HIST_STAMPS="mm/dd/yyyy"

# Would you like to use another custom folder than $ZSH/custom?
# ZSH_CUSTOM=/path/to/new-custom-folder

# Which plugins would you like to load? (plugins can be found in ~/.oh-my-zsh/plugins/*)
# Custom plugins may be added to ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/plugins/
# Example format: plugins=(rails git textmate ruby lighthouse)
# Add wisely, as too many plugins slow down shell startup.
plugins=(git colored-man-pages)


# User configuration

# export MANPATH="/usr/local/man:$MANPATH"

# You may need to manually set your language environment
# export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

# Preferred editor for local and remote sessions
# if [[ -n $SSH_CONNECTION ]]; then
#   export EDITOR='vim'
# else
#   export EDITOR='mvim'
# fi

# Compilation flags
# export ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64"

# ssh
# export SSH_KEY_PATH="~/.ssh/dsa_id"

# Set personal aliases, overriding those provided by oh-my-zsh libs,
# plugins, and themes. Aliases can be placed here, though oh-my-zsh
# users are encouraged to define aliases within the ZSH_CUSTOM folder.
# For a full list of active aliases, run `alias`.
#
# Example aliases
# alias zshconfig="mate ~/.zshrc"
# alias ohmyzsh="mate ~/.oh-my-zsh"

ZSH_CACHE_DIR=$HOME/.oh-my-zsh-cache
if [[ ! -d $ZSH_CACHE_DIR ]]; then
  mkdir $ZSH_CACHE_DIR
fi


source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh
     

 
my zprofile in /etc/zsh:

emulate sh -c 'source /etc/profile'
if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && [ "$(fgconsole)" -eq 1 ]; then
   exec startx
fi

and my /etc/zsh/zshrc:

# Lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
HISTFILE=~/.histfile
HISTSIZE=1000
SAVEHIST=1000
bindkey -e
# End of lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
# The following lines were added by compinstall
zstyle :compinstall filename '/home/adb/.zshrc'

autoload -Uz compinit
compinit


alias ls='ls --color=auto'


export EDITOR=emacs

additional info: I'm running xfce4

Did you read the note on the wiki about noglobalrcs?

Re: themes not displaying properly (zsh + oh my zsh +Terminator)

Thanks for the tip. I created ~/.zshenv (it didn't exist) and wrote "setopt noglobalrcs" then I rebooted and it broke my login (I have an exec in .xinitrc instead of a display manager) so I had to delete it to run the DE

EDIT: I didn't make it clear in my post: even if the DE wouldn't start having a .zshenv with that option, it still didn't fix the theme problem once I started it manually

No idea then. This is (yet another) example of OMZ proving to be nothing but bloat and fail...

I'm having an issue with this as well. It was working at one point and I'm not sure what I did to make it not work, but now the prompt only looks like the default zsh prompt.
