I've been trying different colour schemes while manually setting a transparent background using
hi Normal guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE so my
.vimrc file looks something like this
set t_Co=256 colo mycolorscheme hi Normal guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE
and this works fine for some colour schemes but not for others. For those that don't work, I get a different coloured background.
However, when I manually enter
hi Normal guibg=NONE ctermbg=NONE after vim has loaded, I can get a transparent terminal background.
Why is it that for some colour schemes, the transparency background is automatically done via
.vimrc but not for some others?
Editted to add examples of colour schemes that work and don't.
