This is completely my fault. I did something stupid and I don't know how to fix it. I installed gpm, a console mouse server and was testing it. This is what I did:
sudo apt-get install gpm man gpm selected some random text from man page with mouse pasted this random text with mouse
Now whenever I type the ls command (in this case directory is empty) this is what happens:
doug@debian:~$ ls e the right butt on each line will be removed from the ole holding the selection will clear the
My bash history file doesn't show what command I've typed to change the behavior of ls. It's still aliased correctly as ls='ls --color=auto'
What could I have done? I feel stupid :(
