    Default Bash console numbering

    Hi,

    I'm wondering why the number of the the bash console I have opened starts with the number 4.
    I have actually no problem with that, but I would like to know if that is due to not well finished old session
    and how it is possible to check that.

    Thanks for answering

    Have an example? A shell can be customized to show about any static or
    dynamic data so it's hard to say. Show the output of your shell along
    with the output from the following:

    echo $PS1

    Good luck.

    Hello,

    I'm afraid that it doesn’t help me much.

    Can you understand that:

    marc@linux-kd6l:~> echo $PS1
    $(ppwd \l)\u@\hw>
    marc@linux-kd6l:~>

    NB the stupid smiley is not wanted and take the place of : \

    I have to correct something else. I discover that I have a problem with vi how say that there is an other works session and I can't work further on the text I was tipping yesterday

    Smile Re: Bash console numbering

    So if you add the /l command to your PS1 prompt, you can get it to display the terminal number. If I open up a terminal session using konsole, it just says /l=1. If I open up a session using Ctrl-Alt-F3 for instance then /l=tty3 but I don't really know why you start with 4, but you would think that is because sessions 1-3 are already open perhaps? What terminal program are you using and does switching it to something else make any difference?

    Thank You,
