It looks like that the Basic Colors are applied, but the ANSI Colors are not (as shown in Preferences>Profiles>Colors).
Using Mac OSX 10.7.2. Any help?

I've been having the same issue and this is what seems to have solved it:
In your .bash_profile set CLICOLOR before setting TERM:
# Set CLICOLOR if you want Ansi Colors in iTerm2 export CLICOLOR=1 # Set colors to match iTerm2 Terminal Colors export TERM=xterm-256color
save bash file and source:
Then, in your iTerm2 Preferences > Profiles > Terminal > Report Terminal Type, set to either xterm-256color or xterm
Close iTerm2, restart it and type ls. That did the trick for me.

~/.zprofile, instead of

export CLICOLOR=1 export TERM=xterm-256color
To the following file:
I saved this and then I ran:
The color scheme was then applied.
Please not you will need to run the source command for every terminal window that was already open before you made the changes in the .zshrc file.
