I moved over from Xubuntu to Fedora.

In a colored Xubuntu terminal the folders appear in bold blue wheras in Fedora they appear as normal blue.

I'm familiar with ANSI codes for colors and style but I don't know which file to edit.

How can I make folders appear as bold blue when I type ie: ls in my terminal?


If you're refering to the output of ls, its manpage sent me to the LS_COLORS environment variable and the dircolors helper program that can turn a list of specifications (extensions and the like, including special values like LINK and DIR) into the LS_COLORS you want.

dircolors --print-database will give you commented default settings.
