Hi, i want to ask about the syntax coloring and interactivity of the default shell in arch. After i booted the live cd i was logged in as root and i could see amazing syntax coloring and interactivity. The word-completion stuff was amazing, it was offering words, even dividing them in categories. Now, after i installed arch this feature is missing, i have coloring and word-completion but just the normal one that most distros have, nothing fancy about it. I want to know if there are additional packages that i need to install to get this features the same as they are on the arch installation iso.
Thanks and cheers!
+1 for zsh... bash on 'roids. See my github .config for a stash of my current settings including zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh which is very cool.

The installation iso uses zsh, as mentioned. But (I'm pretty sure) it also uses the grml configuration for which there is a
n aur package.
(partitally OT: as I was critical of your other post, this in contrast was a clear and well asked question - and as you can see it got quick and productive responses).
