Well, for LS, look in your:

~/.bashrc file and look for something like:

alias ls='ls --color=auto'


and remove or comment it out.

in /etc/profile

or in your /home/user/.bash_profile

add

alias ls=\ls

alias vi=\vi

this will use the old version of ls and vi and not the new "improved" ones

or you can type those command at a console... but unless you add to the bash_profile or the /etc/profile the changes will not stay.

/etc/profile for everyone

.bash_profile for specific user

That's not there in any of the .bashrc files.
