120592Determining if Vim is running in text-console mode or X Windows
- Feb 1, 2011Hi,
I've searched Vim help and Google as well as done lots of
experimentation with no luck.
Basically, what I'm trying to do is put something in my .vimrc file that
can determine if I'm starting Vim in text-console mode or in gnome-terminal.
The reason I need to do this is because I log into FreeBSD in
text-console. If I go into Xorg, I use startx and I use gnome-terminal
in Window Maker.
I need to determine if I'm in text-console mode so I can set the term
setting in my .vimrc file to cons25 and if I startx, I need to set
t_Co=256, term to xterm-256color and set the theme to a nice 256 color
If I try to use the color settings in console mode, the screen turns red
and the text flashes.
I've tried the following:
This didn't work. I've also tried:
nothing works. I've even tried the reverse ways like "if !has", but
still, no luck.
Can someone help me out on this?
