Editing /etc/DIR_COLORS does not change colours in terminal
i'm trying to change the default colours for files/directories/etc in my terminal (a term), i did some looking around and found that i need to edit /etc/DIR_COLORS
so i did, following the comment lines i added
and edited the colour values, yet it remains the same, i logged out and in again but still nothing, even copied the file into ~/ but that didnt work.
Is there some aterm config or somethign over writing these settings.
Thanks for your time
