This is somewhat of a cosmetic (and trivial) question, but I suppose it may be useful to others than myself. I've been playing around with the $PS1 variable in my ~/.bashrc, and I was wondering if there was any way to have the first prompt be slightly different than every other prompt. More specifically, so far I have:
PS1='\n\[\e[0;37m\][\[\e[0;35m\]\t\[\e[0;37m\]] \[\e[0;36m\]\u@\h \[\e[0;37m\][\[\e[1;34m\]\W\[\e[0;37m\]] \[\e[0;36m\]\$ \[\e[0m\]'
but I don't want the newline at the beginning to display on the first prompt (and I could extend this to have the first prompt include more info, etc.). I'm using gnome-terminal, if that makes a difference.
Is this at all possible? And if so, how?
