I woule like to install powerline on IPFire, which works perfectly using command
pip3 install powerline-status as decribed here on the project page: https://powerline.readthedocs.io/en/latest/overview.html
I get thos fance shell prompt if installing an appropriate powerline font in Windows and configuring the terminal tool accordingly.
After adding some lines in .bashrc, I noticed that the prompt is very slow. Some investigation revealed that compiling the Python scripts with the help of a C compiler would possibly fix this problem. When installing powerlin using the command above and add --verbose I can see that the install script searched for a folder named “cc”.
I guess it is looking up for a C compiler, then. My question: is it possible to install such a tool on IPFire?
