Do you want a colorful terminal

After moving to Ubuntu, I was looking for a way to make my terminal colorful. Because I really don't like mono color environments. Then I was searching "Enable Colors in Terminal". Then I found a very easy way to give colors to my odd terminal.
  1. Take a terminal window. Press Ctrl + Alt + T (We are going to give colors to the terminal from terminal.)
  2. Then type below command.  vi ~/.bashrc
  3. Then you will have vi editor. Then Press 'i' to start inserting.
  4. Find and remove # infront of below line or add it to that file. force_color_prompt=yes
  5. Then press Esc.
  6. Then type :wq
  7. And close your terminal and take a new terminal. 
Now you got colors!
