Where do I put the colorscheme I just downloaded?
The colorscheme should be put in "~/.vim/colors". If those directories don't already exist, you will need to create them.
I'm using Vim in the terminal. How can I use my colorscheme outside of gvim?
There are few things to note here: • Make sure you tell Vim how many colors your terminal supports. Just add this line to your .vimrc file in your home directory:
Use 88 instead of 256 if that's what your terminal supports. • Download and unzip this plugin into the ~/.vim directory. After that, you should be set.
How do I change my colorscheme?
Just type ":colorscheme <schemeName>" in Vim without the quotes. Tochange the default colorscheme, just add that line to your .vimrc file in your home directory.
