comment Terminator + vim + solarized
Just a tip: you shouldn't just blindly set t_Co to 256 color mode because normally vim will detect this properly on its own. It isn't working for you with Terminator because Terminator uses gnome-terminal and gnome-terminal sets $TERM to xterm, whereas xterm-256color is normally used for a terminal that supports 256 colors. If you instead check for $COLORTERM == 'gnome-terminal' then you can detect gnome-terminal explicitly and compensate for the incorrect $TERM setting.
