Did you try a "man ls"? It should give you two options: use the -G parameter, or set the CLICOLOR environment variable. If you don't know how to do this (or how to make it permanent--as a hint, try adding "export CLICOLOR=" in ~/.bashrc, if bash is your usual shell), come back and ask for details. If this doesn't work for you--or if it works on the text console but not in X, or if it only works in some X terminal emulators but not in others--make sure you've read the ls manpage's section on CLICOLOR and dealt with the termcap issue. If you don't like the colors, read the LSCOLORS section of the manpage. You can also install the GNU fileutils port/package (/usr/ports/sysutils/fileutils), and "gls --color=auto" should colorize things in that vibrant Stallman style that linux people are used to. Then you can alias ls to "gls --color=auto" in your .bashrc, etc. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
