Summary0006016: implement different colour prompt in shell for root and normal users
DescriptionKali's bash prompt is red for all users in the system. This is a bit confusing when using the distro as a normal user. Other distros have a script to color bash prompt differently when using a normal user terminal than when using root account. This improves security and avoids "errors" which can be lethal to the system.

This can be easily achieved packaging this script:

and eventually adding it to kali's default profiles.
