little questoin about vimrc.....

hi there:

jsut got a little question about using vimrc for gvim.

i have added 'colorscheme' into vimrc, which lives at /etc/vimrc. the problem is that the colorscheme i added is only loaded if i start gvim as root, that is after i do 'su -'. if i start gvim before 'su -', the colorscheme is not loaded. why is this?

Hmm. You might want to check the permissions of the global config file (/etc/vimrc or whatever it is on your system).

I have it set up like this - I have a ~/.vimrc that is sourced by ~/.gvimrc so that I keep all the common options in ~/.vimrc and the ones specific to the graphical interface in ~/.gvimrc. This way vim behaves like I expect it to whether it's in graphical mode or not.
My current ~/.vimrc on my laptop:
set nocompatible
syntax on
set ic
set ts=4
set softtabstop=4
set shiftwidth=4
set mouse=a

let g:miniBufExplMapWindowNavVim = 1
let g:miniBufExplMapWindowNavArrows = 1
let g:miniBufExplMapCTabSwitchBuffs = 1
let g:miniBufExplModSelTarget = 1
...and my simple ~/.gvimrc:
source ~/.vimrc
set guifont=ProFont\ 11
