How to disable colored display by ls command in Linux
Sometimes it is annoying to look at the colored display of output by ls command. This is more evident if you use a dark color as background color of the terminal. In such cases, you can use alternative command ‘dir’ to see non-colored output. However it is difficult for one to change the commonly-used command easily. In such case, you can run the following command to make ls command to display non-colored output.
[neo@techpulp ~]# unalias ls
However the above command affect only your current shell. If you want to make this permanent, you can place the command towards the end of your ~/.bashrc file.
