You can do 'man ls' and 'man dircolors'. Also 'info coreutils ls' and
'info coreutils dircolors' should show more information.
In general, dircolors is used to set the LS_COLORS environment variable
which is used by ls --color. If you have just done an Ubuntu install,
you'll probably find that ls is aliased to 'ls --color=auto' in your
.bashrc. dircolors can be used to specify what colors are used. Sorry
- I can't remember any more - it's been a long time since I messed
around with this. I hope this will at least set you on the right
