Description Reuben Thomas 2001-09-11 18:06:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
Some file and terminal types are omitted from /etc/DIR_COLORS (I suggest
what reasonable additions might be below).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A

Additional info:

Here are my suggestions: add xterms and eterm (as in Emacs term mode) to
the list of supported terminals.

Add the following filetypes:

.img 01;35
.xcf 01;35
.pat 01;35
.gbr 01;35
.ps  01;35 # document formats (magenta)
.eps 01;35
.pdf 01;35
.fig 01;35

and one small thing for consistency: in the comment that says "# image
formats", add " (magenta)" at  the end of the line.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-09-18 10:13:48 UTC
Added in 4.1-5, with a couple of changes:
- I've added the KOffice file types to the document types you listed
- I've removed .img from the picture types, it's too confusing because we
  also use .img for disk images (e.g. /boot/initrd-foo.img).
