ls - no colors on Ubuntu
I have some older Ubuntu servers that don't display colors when executing the ls command over Putty. So I took a .bashrc file from a different Ubuntu server and copied over the relevant section that contains the ls --color command. After that I applied the ~/.bashrc file so I don't have to restart the session. This will set the foloring for grep and vi as well.
