As shown in the above picture, When I do the command
ls -a is one specific file name in red color. Why is it so?
The colours from ls are as follows:
- Blue: Directory
- Green: Executable or recognized data file
- Sky Blue: Link
- Yellow (black background): Device file
- Pink: Graphics image file
- Red: File Archive
cf: What do the different colors mean in ls? So most of the files are links, apart from the non-link file archive which is red.
