I am trying to get terminal colors working in 10.9. I have tried ls -G, I have tried exporting CLICOLOR=1, I have set a bunch of different TERM settings and none of it works. Anyone know what the magic incantation is?
ls program on Mavericks is BSD
ls -G is the magic incantation. The
ls program included in GNU Core Utilities lists with color when using the
ls --color=auto. If you've possibly installed Core Utilities and neither of these work, try firing up a default Terminal.app profile (Basic, for example) and see if that works.
