I've hacked my $LS_COLORS to the exact point I like it, and when I login to my box, get just what I want. However, screen is somehow overwriting this variable. I've tried manually setting $LS_COLORS using 'setenv LS_COLORS <long_list>', and still it's wrong.

For an example, I added the following two lines to my .screenrc:

After screen starts up, however, $FOO and $LS_COLORS ($FOO, of course being my hacked version, and $LS_COLORS being the system default). I've looked through my .bashrc and .bash_profile, but the only entries they contain regarding $LS_COLORS are my own--to set it to the custom values.

Any ideas?

Check out /etc/bash.bashrc and /etc/profile. (Your .bash_profile will
nor be read if the shell is not a "login" shell, so you should set
LS_COLORS in ~.bashrc.)


Mea culpa. Noticed that screen sets its own $TERM and just had to add "TERM screen" to the top of /etc/DIR_COLORS. Sorry to have wasted your time.
