What do the various colors in the results of a bash ls signify?
I am at the moment using Ubuntu 10.10 with the default color scheme. If I open a bash terminal and type ls -l / I get the results with most information in white on the standard purple background, most directory names in blue on the normal background, tmp in blue on a green background, a file name in white on the normal background and links in teal on the normal background.
So in this situation I am wanting to figure out what the green background behind tmp signifies. I have searched for information about bash color codes and I find hundreds of links regarding how the CHANGE the colors. I have yet to find one which explains what the colors mean.
Can anyone help?
