bash colours


Hey,

I don't know if I gave this the correct subject but....when I am in a konsole and I do a ls, or when I open a file....say .pl there are no colours anymore! There was yesterday and now there are not. What controls this? I was messing around with my konsole schema but then I turned it back and now all the colous are gone. When I ssh into my server using the same konsole and schema I get colours, so it must be in a ~/.somthingfile....I think.

Thanks for the help (hope I was clear)

Have you changed your .bashrc file?
Code:
# Celeron 850 tinwhistle .bashrc file for user fancy
# User specific aliases and functions

# Change bash prompt. See the article:
# http://www-106.ibm.com/developerwork.../l-tip-prompt/
export PS1='\d \@ \[\e[32;1m\]\u\[\e[34;1m\]@\[\e[36;1m\]\H \[\e[34;1m\]\w\[\e[32;1m\]$ \[\e[0m\]'
# For the root account use this
# export PS1='\d \@ \[\e[31;1m\]\u\[\e[34;1m\]@\[\e[36;1m\]\H \[\e[34;1m\]\w\[\e[31;1m\] # \[\e[0m\]'

# Set paths
alias path='echo -e ${PATH//:/\\n}'

# Allow local users to use my X session
# xhost +local:

# Dialup, start fetchmail daemon and startx
alias x='/sbin/ifup ppp0;fetchmail -d 300;startx'

# Alter the ls command
alias ls='ls -ac'
alias lls='ls -lac'

# Become system administrator
alias god='su -'

# Connect/disconnect the internet by modem
alias dial='/sbin/ifup ppp0'
alias hangup='/sbin/ifdown ppp0'

# Launch links with my linux links page
alias links='links /home/fancy/bookmarks.html'

# Power down/reboot
alias off='shutdown -h now'
alias boot='shutdown -r now'

# For nano editor because I forget which one I use in which distro
alias pico='nano -w'
alias nano='nano -w'

# for launching window manager/desktop environments from console login
alias a='echo DESKTOP=AfterStep > ~/.desktop;startx'

alias bb='echo DESKTOP=BlackBox > ~/.desktop;startx'
alias fb='echo DESKTOP=FluxBox > ~/.desktop;startx'
alias e='echo DESKTOP=Enlightenment > ~/.desktop;startx'

# Script needs to be on the bottom of the file or RH updates will fsck it up
# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
       	. /etc/bashrc

No, I haven't changed my bashrc file. If I su to root then the colours show up. I looked at the root bashrc but nothing that deals with colours is in there? Thanks for your bashrc file though....I am going to have to steal some of that

Maybe there is some sort of konsole setting?

later


Edit:

I just started up a xterm as my user name and the colours are fine....so it must be the konsole....I think

I never have liked kde or konsole. Gimme either E-term or multi-gnome-terminal.

I don't use kde but rather xfce, but I have always liked konsole. But I am always open to new apps. What is multi-gnome-terminal? Where do I get it? I install all of gnome but it doesn't seem to be there?
