syntax on let g:solarized_termcolors=256 set t_Co=256 set background=dark colorscheme solarized
but it doesn't look like GVim, how can I achieve that?
According to the readme of the vim sector of ethan's solarized colorscheme, you need to set the colorscheme of your terminal explicitly. You can take a look at base 16. Install it, and run
base16_solarized-dark. Then vim will, hopefully, show the colors properly. And also put this in your vimrc:
in place of
I faced the same issue couple of weeks ago.
If you look inside of
solarized.vim, you will find a section GUI & CSApprox hexadecimal palettes (in my case line 235).
There are a bunch of ifs, the 2 first being
if (has("gui_running") && ...)
In the terminal, it does not, so depending on if you are using 16 or 256 colors, you will be in the 3rd or 4th
-If you really want the blue of Solarized, you can set your gnome-terminal profile to use solarized colors and change in
solarized.vim the line:
let s:base03 = "234"
let s:base03 = "NONE"
To use the terminal's default color (base03 is used for the background color).
Although I am not persuaded than modifying the theme like that is the best to do (I tried to set the variable at the end of my
.vimrc but it did not work).
And as I don't want to use solarized in my terminal, just in Vim, I stayed with the grey and 256 colors of solarized by default.
Most people barely know about gnome terminal color setting, they just use existing tool to do the job.
colorscheme solarizedin your .vimrc . That's all i need to get solarized colorsheme for neovim.
Don't waste your time on vim setting before you setup your terminal.
