2 problems after upgrading to KDE3


I know I must be bothering you guys with these questions, but I have 2 small problem, this time with the KDE3 update.

1) you know how when you goto the konsole and do a ls, all the files are color coded depending on what they are. Well since I upgraded to KDE3 everything is just the same color, so I was wondering how I can get it to color code the things? I am using bash.

2) I done everything in the readme, and everything goes fine except there are two packages that don't install at all.

They are kdoc and kartwork.

This is the erros that I get:

kdoc:

cp: cannot stat `/install/doinst.sh': No such file or directory
chmod: getting attributes of `/var/log/scripts/kdoc-2.0a54': No such file or directory

kartwork:

cp: cannot stat `/install/doinst.sh': No such file or directory
chmod: getting attributes of `/var/log/scripts/kdeartwork-3.0': No such file or directory


If I can't get these to work I might just download the source files and compile them myself. But I am trying to figure out what is wrong with these first.

Thanks for any help

1) I have the following in my ~/.bashrc
Code:
# add a little color
alias l='ls'
alias lc="ls --color -F"
alias ll="ls -al"
alias llc="ls -al --color -F"
eval `dircolors -b`
The alias lines mean that if you type "ll" the output will be from "ls -al" and in color.
2) I had the same problem, the slack packages for these two are missing the install script, just go ahead and install them from source, thats what I did.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I figured out that I didn't need to use the alias commands, and instead just adding the

eval `dircolors -b'

worked. So now I can just use ls -aF rather than lc or llc.

That and I understood what you mean by using alias, from your explanation.
