    I have this issue on two Macs with El Capitan OS X 10.11 installed. My Terminal sessions, regardless of which profile I use, does not show different colors or bold text. I tried searching for a solution but a lot of them seem a little too advanced for me and I'd rather not install anything new if I don't have to. How do I fix this to get multiple colors and bold text back?

    Correct. After I upgraded to 10.11 (including one erase all/install) I'm only seeing one color. This is happening on two of my machines.

    Open your bash profile

    Code:
    nano ~/.bash_profile
    Copy/paste the following code:

    Code:
    export PS1="\[\033[36m\]\u\[\033[m\]@\[\033[32m\]\h:\[\033[33;1m\]\w\[\033[m\]\$ "
    export CLICOLOR=1
    export LSCOLORS=ExFxBxDxCxegedabagacad
    Press Control X
    Select 'Y' for yes

    Good to go.
