I'm using CentOS 6.5 and Putty.
My problem is that directory file names are shown in dark blue color which is hard to read. I google searched and found this link; basically it's copying the
DIR_COLORS file from /etc to the home directory so changes will only affect the user instead of everyone. The real problem is that whenever I run this command
cp /etc/DIR_COLORS ~/.dir_colors, no .dir_colors file is created. And there is no error message too. I ran it using sudo too but also no file is created.
When I named the file dir_colors(without the dot) then the file will be created, but when I changed the color from 1;34 to 1;33 in DIR # directory, the dark blue color doesn't change to the new color. I'm guessing it is because the dot is missing before the file name. Any ideas why no file is created when I used .dir_colors?
