I created a user 'daniel'. When I log in with that the error occurs:

Code:
dircolors: '/etc/DIR_COLORS': no such file or directory


What is wrong?

Well, what's wrong is that the fiel /etc/DIR_COLORS doesn't exist (but you probably figured that out already :))

You can copy the file from /usr/portage/sys-apps/fileutils/files/DIR_COLORS

Just do this:

Code:
dircolors -p > DIR_COLORS


That will create a default color scheme for you. Open up the file (in the above case DIR_COLORS) and tweak it to your liking.
