    Bash command prompt difficulties


    Hi, I recently edited my bash command line so that it's in color. Everything looked like I expected it to. Then all of a sudden one day I login and I've got [] squares in my command line. Anyone know how I can get rid of them?

    The line in my .bashrc file is below:

    PS1="\033[0;34m\][\t]\033[0;34m\][\u@seaborg:\w]\$ \033[0;00m\] "


    Thanks in advance =)

    Actually the strange thing is that it depends on which computer I use to ssh into this cluster. If I ssh in from home I don't get this problem. If I login on my computer at work I do.

    That's not strange.

    Terminals interpret character codes differently. Try using a different terminal emulator at work, or configure your current one to work.
