This way, themes may be chosen, or a custom color may be chosen to set just the color you wish to use. This is how easy this is.

This way, if there is more than one person using the same account, they can still have more than one profile in the terminal. It is also possible to have a background image in a terminal. This can help to personalize the terminal and make it look very nice.

A tiling image would also be very nice. There is a lovely collection of images in the Propaganda collection. Install this easily.

sudo apt install propaganda-debian

Or

Then browse to the images to select one for a background.
