finally I’ve managed to get Ubuntu 16.04 working, and copied all of my

trick suggested in
with the following line in .bashrc:

export PS1="address@hidden \w\$(__git_ps1)$ "

doesn’t seem to work the same anymore: upon any command I execute in
the terminal I get an error message ‘__git_ps1: command not
found’. Can anyone give me a hint how to update this?
The manual also says:

     You may need to install the additional bash-completion package, but
     it is definitely worth it. After installation you must log out, and
     then log back in again to enable it.

I did check for that: bash-completion had already been installed. But the solution was even dumber: Embarrassingly I didn’t have git installed… sorry for the noise ;-)

Best, Simon
