Hi,

Put something like this in your /etc/vimrc or ~/.vimrc:

colorscheme <schema_name>

schema_name should reside in and be named as:

/usr/share/vim/vim62/colors/<schema_name>.vim

the vim62 part could be different on your box.

Hope this helps.

I use the file .exrc in my home to store those configs
type the command in the file like you would do in vim and it will work
for example

:colorscheme darkblue
