Editing with vi in terminal gives the following error. E185: Cannot find color scheme metacosm. I think the problem is not im my .vimrc (no strange carrage returns). I strongly suspect this problem has to do with os x (10.6).

My .vimrc (line 9).

  1. " Favorite Color Scheme
  2. if has("gui_running")
  3. colorscheme inkpot
  4. " Remove Toolbar
  5. set guioptions-=T
  6. "Terminus is AWESOME
  7. set guifont=Terminus\ 9
  8. else
  9. colorscheme metacosm
  10. endif

Why do you think the problem has something to do with Mac OS X? Where did you put your metacosm colorscheme? – romainl Nov 17 '11 at 6:03
E185 means that Vim searched your 'runtimepath' for the file colors/metacosm.vim and did not find it. What does the command ":set runtimepath?" show you? – garyjohn Nov 17 '11 at 6:48
runtimepath=~/.vim,/usr/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/share/vim/vim72,/usr/share/vim /vimfiles/after,~/.vim/after – r4. Nov 17 '11 at 11:38

Colours not found since I had no colors/metacosm.vim. Installing the file in runtimepath solves it.
