I am trying to make a working example for
logrotate, and to help me through this I figured it was a good idea to turn
stderr to red.
Through some reading, I came upon stderred, which I meant to adopt. I downloaded it, make'd it and it works nicely for the user.
The red formatting however is lost when the command is summoned through
sudo. Specifically, red formatting is visible with this command:
$ /usr/games/cowsay -f fudge Yo cowsay: Could not find fudge cowfile!
but not with this command:
$ sudo /usr/games/cowsay -f fudge Yo cowsay: Could not find fudge cowfile!
I have tried editing
/root/.bashrc to contain:
but that apparently does not make it work. What am I missing?
