install the 'tree' utility?

Posted February 19th, 2019    210   0   tree filesystem

Just a little request - could you please install the 'tree' utility by default? I can make do with the R option on ls, but the output of tree is usually exactly what I want to look at a downloads folder.

Thank you,

Rather than trying to get something installed globally have you considered just creating a bin directory in $HOME and putting any scripts you might need there?

This is a tree standin in bash that I find works ok, if you add $HOME/bin to your $PATH in your bashrc file then this works ok:
