I have noticed on Fedora, the cli prompt itself is not colourful although the rest of the output is. Is there a way to get the prompt itself in colour as well? The prompt on Debian is in colour, it makes it easier to find things when the prompt is in colour aswell.

Since this is not a Qubes-specific question, you might have better luck searching the web for how to do this in Fedora (or Linux in general) or asking in a Fedora (or general Linux) venue.

I wonder if this *is* Qubes specific, as it is stated that the Debian
prompt is in color. (Implicit, I think, is the suggestion that the color
matches the window decorations.)
OP - is that what you see? That the prompt is consistent with the window
decoration set by Qubes?

No the colour of the prompt does not follow the window decoration, I was wondering if this isn't maybe a problem only on Fedora on Qubes and not Fedora in general. I don't have a Fedora standalone I can check on. I just found it odd that the prompt on Debian would be in colour (Green, and it is real easy to find in between a lot of other output) and on Fedora it is the same colour as the text you type. But as I was re-reading my reply here I just had another look over and I just discovered that the prompt on some of the Fedora VMs is in colour, also a bright green, and some of them are default text colour. So in essense it doesn't have anything to do with Qubes. I am a little confused though because I can swear some of the VMs that I previously check where the prompt was the default text colour now has a colourful prompt. (head scratch head scratch)

It must be because of a dependency that gets installed along the way because booting the vanilla Fedora-37 template it does not have a colourful prompt. I don't install anything specific for this myself. Glad we cleared that up :-)
