while using vim within tmux I can see that 256 color support is enabled. with $tput colors
However changing the colorscheme in vim while in tmux will change the colorscheme on a per line basis but not the entire background. see screenshot
Here is a snippet of the my .vimrc file for example. My original colorscheme is solarized dark and then after running :colorscheme molokai you see what happens.
in my ~/.tmux.conf
set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"
in my ~/.vimrc
in my ~/.bashrc
# ryan export TERM="xterm-256color" # ryan alias tmux="tmux -2"
in my ~/.profile
# ryan 256 color support if [ -e /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm-256color ]; then export TERM='xterm-256color' else export TERM='xterm-color' fi
Any ideas how I can get a full colorscheme change in vim? Are all my snippets from the files looking good?
