I know it wasn't a good idea, but after I used the command

rm bash_history

in the pantheon terminal, the colors (like when using ls) disappeared.

What can I do? Can someone provide the original bash_historyfile, or is there an easier way?

Note: This

gsettings reset org.pantheon.terminal.settings palette

did not work.

Just copy the file /etc/skel/.bashrc into your home. This is the default configuration for your bash profile, so it will reset the preferences.
