Making colors not so bold in rxvt?


I'm using rxvt -bg black -fg gray -ls -sr
to start my terminal now.. only thing is the colors of the directories/packages/etc. seem bold as well as colored, is there a way to disable this boldness without disabling the color?

Take a look at /etc/DIRCOLORS (or dircolors).

There should be entries like this:

NORMAL 00
FILE 00
DIR 34
LINK 01;36

The 01 stands for bold, the 36 for cyan, so all links will be cyan and bold. To make them cyan only, remove the 01; part.

Take a look at man dir_colors for the meaning of the color codes.

Hope this helps.
