Change color scheme of your vim

Bored of the color scheme of the vim editor. Changing involves a few steps as follows:

  1. Download the color scheme package.
  2. Extract it in your $Home/.vim folder.
  3. Now you have about 100 color schemes available for selection. Trying each one of them using :colorscheme colorscheme-name sounds time-consuming.
  4. Well, you can install another package Scroll Colors. Extract it in your $Home/.vim/plugins folder.
  5. Open your vim. Type :COLORSCROLL and you will be prompted to continue. Different color schemes will come in sequence when you navigate using arrows. You will get a preview of each color scheme. Look out at the name of the one that seems good to you.
  6. Open your vimrc file in admin mode. You can find it in your system at /etc/vim/vimrc.
  7. Add the line colorscheme greyhouse, say you want to use greyhouse scheme.
  8. Restart vim and enjoy your color scheme.

Cheers!
