    Red face SSH colors


    Hi Everyone, I'm new here and I am curious about how to put colors on my ssh. I am using putty and tried to follow some forums in changing the color of my ssh but in no luck. Any Idea? I am using Debian GNU/Linux

    It depends on what you mean by "colors on ssh", can you expand? If you are using putty, you can use the Putty Configuration tool (under Windows > Colours) to change foreground/background color and cursor.

    You don't really change colors in ssh, per se. You change them in the terminal, provided that is supports it. The best way to do that is by using .Xresources/.Xdefaults files, but that requires some sort of X server, which you wouldn't be using w/putty.

    Also, some linux commands support colorized output, too, e.g.:

    Code:
    ls -l --color /
    Code:
    uname -a|grep -i --color linux
