I am trying to get xterm-256color working, but have not been successful.
I have LMDE 2 Betsy (Linux Mint Debian Edition) installed and am trying to learn to use vim. I installed a vim colorscheme, but the colors were off. Looking online, I need to use xterm-256color instead of the default xterm. I have tried all combinations of information I could find, but have not been able to get it to work.
Combinations I've tried:
export TERM=xterm-256colorin terminal
export TERM=xterm256colorin .bashrc
set TERM=xterm-256colorin .vimrc
set t_Co=256in .vimrc
env TERM=xterm-256color /bin/bashin Run Application
tput colors gives me 256,
echo $TERM gives me xterm-256color
ncurses-terminal is installed and exists on my machine
LMDE's default terminal is
I then installed
guake, but they also don't work and their profile colors in settings only gives a 16 color palette, like the default terminal.
I have reloaded .bashrc and did a logout/login to refresh it, but nothing seems to override my terminal to provide me with 256 colors.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated!
The "molokai" colorscheme from http://bytefluent.com/vivify/ should give me this result:
