As of 0.4.4, MineOS implements BASH colorization.
This results in a directory listing (ls / ll) showing directories in the BASH-standard color scheme:
- blue => directories
- cyan => symlinks
- green => executable regular files
- red => archives
- white => other
Customizing / Removing Colors
Colorization is a function of the ls command and can be disabled by commenting/removing the alias for ls in the /etc/profile file.
- alias ll='ls -l --color=auto' 2>/dev/null
- alias l.='ls -d .* --color=auto' 2>/dev/null
- alias ls='ls --color=auto' 2>/dev/null
A custom bash prompt is required when /etc/profile file exists. By default, when the file exists, the prompt is: PS1 = "\s-\v\$ "
which translates to bash-4.1.7#
Since this is often not a pleasant BASH prompt, it has been enhanced to use:
PS1="$RED\u$NORMAL:$BLUE\W/ $NORMAL\$ "
which is red for the root user, and green for all other users. It also displays the present working directory (base--not full), and finally the $ suffix (as shown in the above picture).
You may--if you choose--return to the default, uncolored prompt by removing the /etc/profile file (or by renaming/moving it).
