Note that .dir_colors
is not a directory, it's a file. Copy DIR_COLORS
in your home directory, then make your changes to .dir_colors
At startup, .dir_colors
is read to create an environment variable
, which contains the color definition ls
uses. In Slackware, this is done by /etc/profile.d/coreutils-dircolors.sh
Running the program dircolors (with an optional file) will return a string that can be used to set the LS_COLORS
variable. Usually you don't have to run it, only edit .dir_colors
, log out and log back in, that should do it.
