This was a nice little article that somewhat demystified vim colors to me.
I downloaded and installed the Base2Tone vim colorschemes, and set the following in my
colorscheme Base2Tone_PoolDark hi LineNr ctermfg=yellow ctermbg=NONE
Is there some way I can get
vim's colorscheme rendering more like
Note: I mentioned the
hi LineNr because I'm curious why the line numbers don't render yellow in
gvim - but I don't necessarily want to clutter this post with too many incidental questions - I'm mostly interested in the background color rendering. To my eye, it looks like the text (foreground?) colors are a pretty reasonable match.
Based on @filbranden's answer, I tried
export TERM=xterm-true-color and restarting
vim, and this looks like it's on the right track, but it's still a bit off -- it looks like it's filling spaces past EOL with black; does anyone recognize the issue, and what setting to change so there isn't that mismatched background color?
