I've turned my dual-boot into a triple-boot and I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 as well as Ubuntu Gnome 14.04.
I've noticed that the terminal output of 14.04 is only coloured for directories. In 16.04 I had much more output that was already coloured that made things easy.
For examples, here is the output of
dmesg in 16.04:
As you can see above, lots of things are coloured to make it easier to skim through. I purposely generated an error here to show how errors are automatically coloured red to make them easier to spot.
Below is the output of
dmesg in 14.04:
As you can see, it's much harder to read.
I've tried setting terminal themes and such, but no automatic colouring. I've also read about a file
/etc/terminal-colors.d but I don't have this in 16.04.
How can I export the colouring settings from 16.04 and import them into 14.04? Or is this simply a matter of different versions of the terminal? I'm considering permanently switching over to Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, there's just a few of these things I'd like to update first.
I've already tried uncommenting the
.bashrc and it didn't change anything.
