Hi!

The executable files are listed in green in my Fedora 16:
s18.postimage.org/i1snak3yv/xterm.png

How Can I change this color?

Thanks!

Hi,

this not a function of bash, but of ls and dircolors. There are lots of howtos on the web. Try putting
"ls dircolors howto" into your favourite search engine.

HTH,

Evo2.
