I was trying to follow the instructions given on the page http://kpumuk.info/mac-os-x/customizing-iterm-creating-a-display-profile-with-pastel-colors/
After running the final command when I reopen the iTerm i find that only the background has changed to black and the text to cream color, it doesn't apply variable colors like blue to folders, some red colors for other file types. Please tell me how can I do so. Is there any other thing I can do to have a beautiful programmer's terminal.
lswith colors, you need to specify the -G argument (or alias it).
