Konsole Colors in KDE


Hello,

I have just installed Slackware 14.2-64 and when I need to use Konsole I cannot figure out how to get different type of files to display in different colors. I would like to have folders in one color, executables to show a different color, etc. I have looked for a solution and have had no luck thus far. If anyone can help me please do so as I have hit a wall on trying to figure this out.

Thanks!

Sandy

it is right there infront of you

run Konsole
and under "settings" in the gui window is " configure Konsole"
under the "profiles" tab is "edit profile" then click on the " appearance" tab and edit one of the installed ones or use one of the already installed schemes

Slackware normally sets an alias for 'ls' in the profile file for 'login shells', but konsole doesn't start a 'login shell' by default, so you don't get it. Some folks suggest changing the konsole preferences so that it starts a 'login shell' to workaround this issue. Personally, I don't like that idea.

Add the following to your $HOME/.bashrc file (if you don't have one just create one):
Code:
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
The next time you start konsole you'll get your colour ls output.
