Eterm colors


Hi,

I've installed Eterm and it works fine, except it doesn't "color" directory contents, i.e. makes executables green, directories blue etc.....except I do

ls --color

How can I make Eterm always color directory contents??

simply add this to your ~/.bashrc

alias ls='ls --color=always -F -X'

and if you want to modify the default color of your system edit /etc/DIR_COLORS

Hi guys,

Eterm has its own config file and will not use the system colors you specify in DIR_COLORS unless you comment those out in theme.cfg.

Cheers,
Jan
