OpenBSD: dircolors?

Hi, I'm wondering how I can get colors on the stuff that ls prints out in OpenBSD?

Assuming you're using bash (and a color terminal!)

Add to ~/.bash_profile:

alias ls="ls --color=tty"

You may have to set up an $LS_COLORS variable, but try that first to see if you really need one...

That doesn't work.. probably I dont use a color terminal..

I use 'ansi'.. what should I assign to the $LS_COLORS variable?

Hmm, TERM=ansi...
It sounds like my old enemy, Windows Telnet.

But back to your question....

I just tried it out on my OpenBSD box to no avail!
I had "regular" ls and GNU ls confused...

You could get and install GNU ls (fileutils package), along with dircolors, and related config files if you really wanted it...

Sorry to be misleading before...

Ok, thanks for the replies Smilie

By the way, I dont use windows telnet.. I use the ssh/telnet-client 'putty' Smilie
