Cool colored prompt

PS1='\[\e[1;31m\]${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\e[1;36m\]\u\[\e[1;34m\]@\h\[\e[0m\] : \[\e[1;32m\]\w\n\[\e[1;31m\]\$\[\e[0m\] '
PS1='\[\e[1;31m\]${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\e[1;42;33m\] \u\[\e[1;44;36m\]@\h \[\e[0m\] \[\e[1;32m\]\w\n\[\e[1;31m\]\$\[\e[0m\] '

Prompt additions

To show information on the current chroot / add prefix if working via ssh:

PS1="${debian_chroot:+\[\e[41m\] (${debian_chroot}) \[\e[0m\]}${PS1}"
PS1="${SCHROOT_SESSION_ID:+\[\e[41m\](${SCHROOT_SESSION_ID}) \[\e[0m\]}${PS1}"
PS1="${SSH_CONNECTION:+\[\e[44m\] (ssh) \[\e[0m\]}${PS1}"


Here it is my even-nicer brand-new bash prompt!
