I am trying to use the desert color scheme with VIM 7.0 on CentOS 5.6 x64 located here:
I've downloaded the file and saved it in my
~/.vim/colors directory. I then tell VIM to use the colour scheme by issuing:
It's supposed to look like this:
However I get this:
I'm logging onto this server just as a regular user (not
sudo) using PuTTY 0.60 and have set the following options under
Window -> Colours:
Allow terminal to specify ANSI colours - checked Allow terminal to use 256-colour mode - checked Bolded test is a different colour - checked Attempt to use logical palettes - unchecked Use system colours - unchecked
sudo or logon as
root and try the same I don't get any colours at all other than white text on a black background.
Are these schemes mostly aimed at gVIM and is PuTTY just not able to display these colours?
I've google'd around a bit and bumped into articles such as this one but they don't appear to work.
