Cd shows directory contents


Why does ‘cd /usr’ show the directory content? I just want to go to /usr without seeing the content everytime. Where is this behaviour set?


What do you mean? Is this happening in the terminal, can you give me a screenshot please.


Nothing fancy to see. Whenever I do a cd (dir) I always get an overview (in wide view) and than the second line of the prompt is normal ->

It should not list the directory content. It should list the name of the dir on the first line and that’s it. I checked the aliases but nothing to see there. I’ve never experienced this kind of cd’ing :wink:


I would have said there is an alias too. Weird behavior otherwise.
You are sure there is nothing in your bashrc ?
Or maybe a simlynk to a custom script that call the cd then ls ?


Hmm. Ah yes I see on my test laptop. It is something to do with the zsh theme. I don’t use this theme so I am just working it out.


Okay got it. Head to ~/.zsh/settings/ and open funcs.zsh.

Just remove the section called “better ls and cd”.

Restart your terminal.


Thanks. That did the trick. In bash and zsh.


Please feel free to mark this solved.


I thought I did. I changed the header of the first message to solved
