I tried that with root but it chaged the color of dir with root only. When i go back to user again color go back to normal. i think my file gets overwritten every time – user1721949 Dec 4 '12 at 7:08

Put this entry in .bashrc

LS_COLORS='di=0;35'; export LS_COLORS

And put this entry in .bash_profile

if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then . ~/.bashrc; fi
