I have been using NVIM on Ubuntu machine for about 3 month now, and like most noobs started with gnome terminal, I would like to graduate to plain xterm, but having trouble with the color in xterm. Below, on the left is the gnome terminal and on the right is the xterm:
Below is my xterm configuration:
[[ -f ~/.Xresources ]] && xrdb -merge -I$HOME ~/.Xresources
xterm*faceName: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline xterm*faceSize: 11 xterm*loginshell: true xterm*savelines: 16384 ! double-click to select whole URLs :D xterm*charClass: 33:48,36-47:48,58-59:48,61:48,63-64:48,95:48,126:48 *customization: -color XTerm*termName: xterm-256color xterm*rightScrollBar: false xterm*ScrollBar: false XTerm*selectToClipboard: true ! hard contrast: *background: #1d2021 *background: #282828 ! soft contrast: *background: #32302f *foreground: #ebdbb2 !

In the xterm running the 256color.pl script show following:
It seems like this is all that I need. Am I missing something? Also my configs can be found at:
NOTE: I use nvim, so for configuration look at the .nvimrc, but doing some testing the colours are the same for NVIM and VIM.
