Color disappear in Konsole


Colors disappear in Konsole when switching windows. I want to make folders in one color and files in other, but when switch to firefox and then back to konsole all fonts are white on black background. I am using vesa driver.

I read that there are some profiles for Konsole. Is there a problem?

I think this is "normal" behaviour. You can customise your konsole settings by using the menu at the top of the konsole eg: black on light color, font size etc then save them as default option. I can't remember the details as I am using gnome desktop at moment.

I am not sure what "normal" behavior mean. I want to set bash or Konsole or whatever it is to show colors by default. I find long listing option --colors=always, but it is too long. I have to write every time

Code:
ls --colors=always
not to mention other parameters.



I read about some bash variable LS_COLORS. Do I have to edit it or what?

No, you don't have to edit the LS_COLORS.

I don't know whether or not konsole has special features
to deal w/ colours, but for (other) emulators including
full-screen just create an alias in your ~/.bashrc
Code:
alias lc='ls --colors=always'
That way you can do lc instead of ls if you NEED colours.

Note that in scripting the colours and other special features
like added / or * may confuse the results, so aliasing ls with
the above suggestions may not be a good idea.


Cheers,
Tink
