I get the following message after installing Oh My ZSH and changing ZSH_THEME="robbyrussel" to ZSH_THEME="random" in .zshrc.

Users/me/.oh-my-zsh/oh-my-zsh.sh:source:110: no such file or directory: /Users/me/.oh-my-zsh/themes/“random”.zsh-theme

Remove the "'s from the ZSH_THEME variable. You want:


in your .zshrc file. See the zsh theme documentation for an example that shows it, clearly, without the "'s on the value.

  • Actually, whether there are "s around random would not make a difference. The real issue is, that - according to the error message and contrary to the code snippets - curly double quotation marks ( and , Unicode U+201C and U+201D) were used instead of straight quotation marks (", ASCII 0x22).

  • @Adaephon yea, it was easier to tell him to remove the quotes than to stop using unicode characters. :)
