lost text highlighting terminal

Asked by hedbag on 2007-04-02

I've lost the text highlighting (e.g. blue for directories etc) on my terminal.
This happened after I installed several sets of packages (about 1300)
I'm using Gnome Terminal 2.16.1

I tried changing the themes and found I could get different global colors for the text but not selective highlighting for different types of "file"

any help?

Does this do what you want?: ls --color=auto

If so, just add this to your ~/.bashrc file:

alias ls='ls --color=auto'

Cheers! That's what I was looking for. I should've tried man ls
