Editing terminal colors


When running ls -la a particular color is used for directory listings. I use a different color scheme normally which is powered by Tilix profile. It seems like even changing the profiles does not change the colors being used in the terminal for operations such as ls -la.

Is there a file in defaults/etc which maybe causing colors to be set on shell launch? I am using zsh also.

You can override shell colors (and thus dircolors or LS_COLORS by putting the changes you want in e.g. .bashrc for bash. I do not know about zsh, though, I don’t use that.

I override our zsh defaults myself with empty /etc/zshrc and /etc/zshenv.
