LKBEN11188: Howto configure colors in git


You need to change your colors for status, commit, checkout and branch




To configure git so you will see colors you use the following commands:

git config --global color.status auto
git config --global color.branch auto
git config --global color.diff auto
git config --global color.interactive auto

This will create or change your git configuration file "~/.gitconfig" in your home drive with the following contents:

        diff = auto
        status = auto
        branch = auto
        interactive = auto
