I have a problem with colors when using
vi under Ubuntu 12.04.
I'm connecting to my Ubuntu server from a PC, using PowerTerm terminal emulation software. I have PowerTerm set up to display black text on a grey background.
When I connect to the Ubuntu box, the screen is fine. When I open a file with
vi, the screen is fine. The text is black on a gray background, which is normal for my PowerTerm setup. However, if the file is less than a full screen long, the remainder of the screen is a black background. When I quit
vi, the entire background turns black, and the text becomes white. I have to do a Terminal Reset to restore my
normal text and background colors.
What I want is for there to be no change at all when I use
vi. The text should be black and the background grey. I have another server loaded with RedHat 9, and that acts normally; colors don’t change when using
Here is my
set compatible syntax off let g:loaded_matchparen=1 set nocp set noincsearch set nohlsearch set noshowmatch set bg=dark
set bg=dark and
set bg=light. It makes no difference. Is there some other set command that would clear this up for me, or some TERM setting (my TERM is set to linux)?
