January 14, 2014 2.8k views
Hi everyone, Am using PUTTY and sshing to my VPS. I am running Ubuntu 12.04.3 x64. And the one thing I really hate is the folder colours i.e. folder names are in blue, its really hurting my eyes but I don't know how you change it? I know how to change it via GUI but not terminal base. Hope someone can help? Thanks!
