I'm having a problem to use colormake (1) (2). First I installed it with apt-get and try to compile my makefile, but what I got, wasn't colourized properly. In other words, colors are changed, but they are all grey:

Then I download everything from the author website and tried to copy manually everything to \usr\bin by

cp -fa colormake.pl colormake colormake-short clmake clmake-short /usr/bin/

and yet I have exactly the same results. What I'm doing wrong here and how can I tackle the problem?
