Hello. I have updated my configuration files with etc-update, but after this it seems to be a problem with my ls colors. They are gone. I'm messed some conf file.. how can I bring back the colors ? Thank you from now.

Try
Code:
~# echo "alias ls=\"ls --color=auto\"" >> ~/.bash_profile && . ~/.bash_profile

Fixes the symptom rather than the disease :wink: .

Thank you but... no. :(
Still without colors. Before the etc-udpate command I had colors, but now they are gone.
Help. :(

Code:
man dircolors

Shows that the 2 config files are: /etc/DIR_COLORS and ~/.dir_colors

Are they empty? Should I post mine?

I'm having a similar issue, only my system never even started with colors! I rebuilt my system from scratch, and now all of a sudden the colors have no effect. It's that way for root and my normal user account. Anyone know why yet?

I might add that eval 'dircolors -b /etc/DIR_COLORS' doesn't seem to have any effect, whether I put it in .bash_profile or run it by hand. I've also tried just dircolors -b /etc/DIR_COLORS. Why won't ls give the color output?

Oh, ls --color=auto does work for me, but like was said before, I'd like to cure the disease.

OK, one last thing I've noticed:

both /etc/skel/.bashrc and ~/.bashrc contain the following:

Code:
# Enable colors for ls, etc.  Prefer ~/.dir_colors #64489
if [[ -f ~/.dir_colors ]]; then
        eval `dircolors -b ~/.dir_colors`
else
        eval `dircolors -b /etc/DIR_COLORS`
fi


so the problem is somewhere else?

For a system-wide fix for ls colors, add this to the bottom of /etc/bash/bashrc
Code:
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
:)

As long as your ~/.bash_profile references your ~/.bashrc you can set LS_COLORS there and baselayout changes won't break it.

From my .bash_profile:
Code:

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
    . ~/.bashrc
fi

From my .bashrc:
Code:

LS_COLORS="di=36:fi=0:ln=35;1:or=31;104:mi=31;104:ex=91:*.tgz=93:*.tar.gz=32;1:*.tar.bz2=32;1"
export LS_COLORS

You could copy the colors from /etc/skel, or wherever, or personalize them. The .tgz setting shows that these go back to my Slackware days 4-7 years ago.
