If you SSH into a remote Ubuntu terminal and do not see coloured text, here might be a solution. The problem is on the remote host, where bash is missing the profile and configuration for coloured commands. I will help fix this.
Connect via SSH to the remote host. You need to look for 2 hidden files in the user’s home directory.
You can check by issuing:
If you do not see the aforementioned files, this might be an easy fix.
You should already have a default copy of .bashrc and .profile in a directory called /etc/skel/.
Simply issue these commands to copy them into your user’s home directory:
cp /etc/skel/.bashrc ~/ cp /etc/skel/.profile ~/
Now test this by logging out of your user/SSH and connecting again. Hopefully now you should have a colourful terminal!
