Some directories are highlighted green in my ll list so that it becomes unreadable. How can I switch that off?
I tried to upload a screenshot, but it wont show it... I hope my question is still clear
So, I tried to change it following How do I change the color for directories with ls in the console?
I went through all the types in the list
di = directory fi = file ln = symbolic link pi = fifo file so = socket file bd = block (buffered) special file cd = character (unbuffered) special file or = symbolic link pointing to a non-existent file (orphan) mi = non-existent file pointed to by a symbolic link (visible when you type ls -l) ex = file which is executable (ie. has 'x' set in permissions). *.rpm = files with the ending .rpm
but that type did not change. it actually is a directory. for some reasons there seem to be two styles for directories. one is just dark blue no background, the other one has the green background that makes it unreadable. the di option only changes the directories that are dark blue and readable. Ideally I would avoid having a solution that removes all highlighting like ll --color=none. I would prefer to just get rid of that background The unreadable directories have the signature drwxrwxrwx, while the readable ones have drwxr-xr-x
