Re: Colors in the prompt like in slackware ?

     To also have .gz and .tgz in read quite like in slackware, you may
also try putting in /etc the file I send as attachment and in /etc/profile
these lines: 

# set up the color-ls environment variables:
if [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/zsh" ]; then
  eval `dircolors -z`
elif [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/ash" ]; then
  eval `dircolors -s`
  eval `dircolors -b`

     I confess that I copied everything pretty "monkeyshly" from an old
Slackware I removed long ago (when I noticed that for a veeery long time I
had been booting and using Debian only), maybe those tests on $SHELL are
unuseful with Debian... Actually I left them to set up the prompt too,

if [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/pdksh" -o "$SHELL" = "/bin/ksh" ]; then
 PS1="! $ "
elif [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/zsh" ]; then
 PS1="%m:%~%# "
elif [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/ash" ]; then
 PS1="$ "
 PS1='\h:\w\$ '
PS2='> '
export PS1 PS2

though in this mailing list *MUCH* simpler commands appeared for that aim
quite recently.

# Configuration file for the color ls utility
# This file goes in the /etc directory, and must be world readable.
# You can copy this file to .dir_colors in your $HOME directory to override
# the system defaults.

# COLOR needs one of these arguments: 'tty' colorizes output to ttys, but not
# pipes. 'all' adds color characters to all output. 'none' shuts colorization
# off.

# Extra command line options for ls go here.
# Basically these ones are:
#  -F = show '/' for dirs, '*' for executables, etc.
#  -T 0 = don't trust tab spacing when formatting ls output.

# Below, there should be one TERM entry for each termtype that is colorizable
TERM console
TERM con132x25
TERM con132x30
TERM con132x43
TERM con132x60
TERM con80x25
TERM con80x28
TERM con80x30
TERM con80x43
TERM con80x50
TERM con80x60
TERM xterm
TERM vt100
