I had selected some really smart looking color schemes for Vim here
Following the instruction inside those files I've copied them in my
When Vim is launched in normal mode, I type
:colorscheme dw_blue, and nothing happens. Same if I put this line in my .vimrc file.
In deed sometimes (with a nother custom file) not really nothing happens, if I visualize a cpp file, only the color of the #include will became gray instead of pink. But it's really all. All the color scheme remains intact (and I'm really not found of yellow and red and cyan and blue and rainbows all over my code :-))
I have tried with the files
matrix.vim, and the problem is the same for all these files.
At first, there was a problem of end of line. So I corrected all the Dos cr-lf into Unix lineFeed with the text editor Scite. But this was blocking with a clear error in vim
unknown ^M error. But there's no more error in my case: it just doesn't load the theme.
However, if I load the original theme
darkblue from original Vim themes, then the theme is loaded. Same with
desert, 'ron' and so on...
As a solution I could try playing with the content of those files so as to achieve a theme I like, but I'd really like to know why I couldn't load the files.
I use vim73. I thought I could be because of the ATerm transparent terminal I was using, so I tried with XTerm and I got no different results.
