Here is a quick fix to change the directory colour from blue, which can be really hard to read on a blackbackround that for example putty.
This line with change the colour of the directories to yellow but will leave all other colours alone. You can add this to your ~/.bashrc script to make permanent.
export LS_COLORS=$(echo $LS_COLORS | sed "s/di=\(..\);../di=\1;93/")
Change the 93 to some other colour if you wish:
90 Dark grey
91 Light red
92 Light green
94 Light blue
95 Light purple
You can also add other effects and change background colours but that’s beyond the scope of this little tute but a quick search on the net will show you how.
Also don’t forget to try out the monkey tool, it’s a great time saver.
