rb007I like the desert theme, but I don't like the green highlight color. Is there a way to change just the highlight (visual) color to orange?
does anyone know how to change the color of the visual highlight on the desert theme? Or a tutorial on how to make a new color scheme?
praetiscopy the theme to a new file in the same directory under a different name, and then change whatever you want about it
that directory being ~/.vim/colors
rb007praetis: thanks... I just found that directory. Can I put my new theme in ~/.vim/ somewhere, or should it go in /usr/wherever
this is great... just getting vim down to where it is great
praetistype :hi to see all the entities you can highlight
rb007praetis: thanks
praetisyep, I for one appreciate how easy it is to make custom syntax files
rb007I like desert, except for the green highlight
what would cause vim to detect .tex files wrong?
i have the vimLatex package
some .tex files it opens fine
others, it opens like it has no idea its a latex file
there seems to be no discernable difference between the files that work and the files that don't
