i use konsole, and since i installed the new kde 3.2, the colors have been lost... for example, executables are green etc. how can i change that?

bash-2.06b$

Sounds like your /home/user_name/.bashrc & .bash_profile are missing here are mine from the /etc/skel directory on Debian you may have to make changes or check for the same in your directories.

Code:
[05:37 PM Sat Feb 07: stephen @ ~]
>$ cat /etc/skel/.bashrc
# ~/.bashrc: executed by bash(1) for non-login shells.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files (in the package bash-doc)
# for examples

# If running interactively, then:
if [ "$PS1" ]; then

    # don't put duplicate lines in the history. See bash(1) for more options
    # export HISTCONTROL=ignoredups

    # check the window size after each command and, if necessary,
    # update the values of LINES and COLUMNS.
    #shopt -s checkwinsize

    # enable color support of ls and also add handy aliases
    if [ "$TERM" != "dumb" ]; then
        eval `dircolors -b`
        alias ls='ls --color=auto'
        #alias dir='ls --color=auto --format=vertical'
        #alias vdir='ls --color=auto --format=long'
    fi

    # some more ls aliases
    #alias ll='ls -l'
    #alias la='ls -A'
    #alias l='ls -CF'

    # set a fancy prompt
    PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ '

    # If this is an xterm set the title to user@host:dir
    case $TERM in
    xterm*)
        PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME}: ${PWD}\007"'
        ;;
    *)
        ;;
    esac

    # enable programmable completion features (you don't need to enable
    # this, if it's already enabled in /etc/bash.bashrc).
    #if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
    #  . /etc/bash_completion
    #fi
fi
[05:38 PM Sat Feb 07: stephen @ ~]
>$ cat /etc/skel/.bash_profile
# ~/.bash_profile: executed by bash(1) for login shells.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files for examples.
# the files are located in the bash-doc package.

# the default umask is set in /etc/login.defs
#umask 022

# the rest of this file is commented out.

# include .bashrc if it exists

#if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
#    source ~/.bashrc
#fi

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
#if [ -d ~/bin ] ; then
#    PATH=~/bin:"${PATH}"
#fi

# do the same with MANPATH
#if [ -d ~/man ]; then
#    MANPATH=~/man:"${MANPATH}"
#    export MANPATH
#fi
You need to uncomment the if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then ...... lines in the .bash_profile in order for it to work properly and logout and back in or if you do not want to logout after having uncommented from a console window source /home/user_name/.bashrc.
