Re: Emacs Shell Ansi Colors

Perfect! Just to finish off this thread, here is the output of
$ env | grep TERM
TERM=dumb
TERMCAP=
COLORTERM=gnome-terminal

This time ran from within emacs.
I had neither file ~/.emacs_bash nor ~/.emacs.d/init_bash.sh, but
creating ~/.emacs.d/init_bash.sh with the only content

alias ls='ls --color'

 followed by a blank line (precisely as you said) got the job done.
Thanks again to the people on the list.
Cheers

Lorenzo

It is hard to want something you cannot describe.
