View Full Version : VIM colors

16th June 2006, 03:45 AM
In the past when I use vi to edit a file, I get a nice colored view. That was with Redhat install.

But with my new FC4 install, vi just gives me a plain white text on a black background.

Also, I used to get line numbers (e.g. 72/438) to show me where I am in the file. But I don't get that anymore.

How do I get vim to show colors?

BTW, I connect to my remote machine via ssh using putty on my Windoze machine.
