I haven't been able to apply any color scheme to iTerm2.
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.
this is a really old question, but make sure your
Preferences -> Profiles -> Colors -> Minimum contrast setting is not at the max... if it is and you've done what is suggested above, slide it to a lower setting and you should see the colors appear.
I had the same problem and found a solution:
Profiles -> Colors -> Minimum Contrast. If it's high, then you only get black and white.
If you are using
zsh and @sam3k answer didn't work for you - you should put those lines in
.zshrc instead of
Several answers have mentioned the contrast setting. Even at about 60% of the way across my ANSI blue turned black.
Crank the contrast down before you look for other solutions; it is way more aggressive than I expected.
