I would like to change some of the colours used by vim because they are hard to read against the pale rose and pale blue backgrounds I like. I have tried :set background=light
but it does not make any difference.
Netsearching shows colours can be changed by adding lines like this to ~/.vimrc
hi Comment term=bold ctermfg=lightblue guifg=lightblue
In that example, presumably "Comment" identifies a text element of vim's display. How can I get a list of vim's text elements' names? I want to change the colours of line numbers and (programming language) keywords.
This vim command shows a list of colours in colour but many of them are paler than I would like
Is that the full range? Can they be tweaked using terminal emulator (mrxvt) settings?
