      Normally it should do this by default (check it in vim, or maybe by
      loading vim as "vim -N -u NONE"). If it doesn't:

      if !has("gui_running")
      set bg=dark

      see under ":help feature-list":

      gui_running Vim is running in the GUI, or it will start soon.

      Best regards,
