ZSH (using Oh My ZSH) on Manjaro Linux

0. If ZSH is not already installed on your Manjaro system you can do it with the command:

sudo pacman -Syu zsh

You do not need to install manjaro-zsh-config and all the other related packages like zsh-syntax-highlighting, zsh-history-substring-search, zsh-autosuggestions, etc., as we will use Oh My Zsh.

1. Install Oh My ZSH

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"


sh -c "$(wget -O -)"

2. Installation of two important plugins I can't live without

git clone ${ZSH_CUSTOM:-~/.oh-my-zsh/custom}/plugins/zsh-syntax-highlighting


git clone ${ZSH_CUSTOM:-~/.oh-my-zsh/custom}/plugins/zsh-autosuggestions

3. Configuring zsh

Modify the ~/.zshrc config file editting plugins section like this:


Change the theme to agnoster:


4. Logout/logon or apply the changes with:

source ~/.zshrc

5. Make zsh default if you haven't already:

chsh -s $(which zsh)

6. Enjoy!
