Hi guys,

Is there anyway I can change the font colors of directories and files under Linux when viewing them via ssh client "putty"? I normally use putty to access the Linux machines specially RedHat, Debian and rPath machines and the weird thing is that all directories appear in purple color and background is always black so it gets very hard for me to read the directory names.

Any help will be much appreciated.

To change the color scheme of a particular Putty session:

1. Find the Putty window for which you want to change the color scheme.

2. Right-click the title bar and choose "Change Settings".

3. Click on "Colours" in the left pane.

4. The right pane will display color options. Click on one of the colors to adjust, then enter in the RGB values for said item or click the "Modify" button to choose your desired colors from a color palette.

5. Click "Apply" to close the dialog box.

Hi shakoush2001,

Thanks for the solution. It works but changes made to font colors does not get saved. Your mentioned steps need to be done every time an ssh session is established. Isn't there any way I could get these font color settings saved? I have created putty shortcuts for different servers e.g. C:\putty.exe 10.122.9.121 and I normally just double-click on them to establish an ssh session.

Thanks for your help
