Package: konsole
Version: KDE 3.0.0 
Severity: normal
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
Compiler:          Not Specified
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

I really enjoy the graphical configuration utility included in the KDE-3.0 version of Konsole.  However, I noticed that while the colors I select as a part of my Schema are used by most applications, such as Vim, the colors output by the 'ls' command seem to remain at the same color.  Interestingly enough, if I do the same task with another terminal (modify the color scheme), the changes are reflected immediately, and as I would expect them to be.

I'm somewhat familiar with the 'dircolors' command, and I've tried varying the color scheme with different 'dircolors' configurations, but that doesn't seem to make any difference...'ls' outputs the colors assigned by 'dircolors' (e.g. I can change executables from green to blue) but I don't seem to be able to change the terminal's representation of the green or blue colors themselves.
