I am new to vim and am trying to set a colorscheme. However, for both pre-installed and new colorschemes, the only thing that happens when I change the colorscheme is the background color changes. For example,
:colo evening shows up with just a lighter gray background;
:colo pablo changes nothing at all. Regardless of if I change it in the vimrc file or manually in a file, the result is the same. I am using iTerm2.
What am I missing here?
Update: changing colorscheme now changes the background color as well as other messages such as "a .swp file exists"... However, the text color of the actual program does not change.
