     27If you use a dark background, you can try the cobra color scheme.  Execute the following command while in Vim. 
    2828{{{

     44If the color schemes don't seem to be working then your terminal may not support all necessary colors.  Check the value of your TERM variable by executing 
     45{{{ 
     46echo $TERM 
     47}}} 
     48at the command prompt.  If it reports ''xterm'' then you can try the following to enable color support. 
     49{{{ 
     50export TERM=xterm-256color 
     51}}}

     53If the colors show up correctly now you can add that line to your ''.bashrc'' file.  This was tested on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and 10.04 LTS.

    4556For all users use your system admin privileges to copy the ''indent/cobra.vim'', ''ftdetect/cobra.vim'', ''syntax/cobra.vim'', into Vim's ''indent'', ''ftdetect'', and ''syntax'' directories, respectively. These directories are found in the Vim home path. An example of such a Vim path is ''/usr/share/vim/vim72''.
