Terminal Colors


I use Slackware 9.1, and as user, the terminal spits out some handy colors for me. However, as root, I get just plain white text. Any way to apply the user settings to global?

Try to do a

ls --color

and see if you get your dircolors

If so you can go into your

/root/.bashrc (create it if it doesn't exist)

and add the line
alias ls='ls --color'

That should do it
