color on Eterm


I install Eterm on my bsd box, When I "ls -G", it can not display color, but it can display prompt color flawless(I config the PS1 stuff). Is there any config should do with Eterm ?

PS: I do not whether this is proper place to post this question, if not, I can delete it and post it to BSD board.

I'm not sure and this may be totally wrong... but to get a color directory listing I always use:

ls --color=tty

does that help / work?

Cool

Thanks all.
Sorry for delaying reply, I finally figure out how to enable Eterm with color on my freebsd box.

I tried this:
$>export TERM = "xterm-color"
After that, the Eterm showed me color.

Finally, I put this in my .bash_profile

Code:
case "$TERM" in
xterm|xterm-*|ETerm)
TERM="xterm-color";;
esac
