I am looking for a way to force color prompt to yes across the entire server. /etc/bash.bashrc does not have any color prompt information in it, only the user relevant .bashrc does. someone suggested copy pasting the segment of code that enables color prompt from .bashrc into /etc/bash.bashrc, but that did not seem to work.

I suppose it is not that difficult to simply sudo change every user's account settings, but there should be an easier way.
