Re: less and color

more handles colors fine. But you must add the --color option
to ls when piping if you want colors.

less needs the -r option to handle colors.

: I have setup the ls command to use the display color option using an

: colors.

: Has anyone out there fixed this problem?  I have tried changing the

: appreciated.  I should mention that I am using the console with
: $TERM=linux.
