How do I get pacman-color to work?


I used ABS to install it with "makepkg" and nothing happens. I get the regular color schemes under regular user, which is whenever I hit "ls" it will show all directories as blue, but as root it's a normal color. Pacman-color is supposed to make pacman commands more colorful, right? Did I install it the wrong way? For the record, I used tar -xvf and it worked fine and I also used makepkg (In which this is the first time I've used it) and it seemed to compile it fine as well, but after I did it, nothing really changed. Is there another step? Is there a package that will make it look like Sabayon's colorful terminal, or Gentoos? Is pacman-color the only package out there for changing the color of the terminal fonts?

After creating the package with ( as a user )
Code:
makepkg -s
You need to install the package ( as root )
with
Code:
pacman -U /path/to/pkg-name
( in the directory where you build the package unless you changed the location in /etc/makepkg.conf )

I can't find the package. Is there a default path to it? I've tried the place where I built it.

The package did not build successfully.

/usr/bin/strip: unable to rename './usr/bin/pacman-color'; reason: Success
Have you tried to put

Code:
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
in ~/.bashrc

EDIT:

This is what it looks like when a package builds successfully:

Thank you for offering the alternative, it worked, but may I ask... 1. Are there other font-color changing aliases I can use, and 2. Can I have an explanation on why it didn't work?

You probably have problems with your makepkg.conf

It built for me with no problems.

Code:
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
==> Tidying install...
  -> Purging other files...
  -> Compressing man and info pages...
  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...
==> Creating package...
  -> Generating .PKGINFO file...
  -> Compressing package...
==> Leaving fakeroot environment.
==> Finished making: pacman-color 3.5.3-1 (Sun Jun 12 22:07:03 CDT 2011)
It just was the /etc/pacman.d/color.conf file and a /usr/bin/pacman-color binary.

You said there was a problem with my makepkg.cfg file, right? What's wrong with it? Should I post what's inside the file here for confirmation?

I installed pacman-color from the AUR using yaourt. After that add; "alias pacman='pacman-color'" to your .bashrc and if you want root to use it as well add it to root's .bashrc. Root had no .bashrc so I just copied the one from my home directory. Hope this helps.

His problem was that makepkg failed to finish the build, thus no package to install.

So I'm guessing this doesn't happen very often?

No, especially with such a simple program.

Go ahead and post your /etc/makepkg.conf.

Here it is. I never modified nor touched it. I wonder if I did something wrong during the installation... I followed the Tutorial though.

Not a problem there.

Have you built any packages from AUR?

The output of

Code:
pacman -Qm
will show you all the packages that you have that are not currently in the arch repositories.

Madwifi seems to be causing me a lot of problems lately. Is it Madwifi that's causing it to fail to make packages?

No, but you probably don't need it.

Code:
pacman -R madwifi-utils
