      - download and install the CSApprox plugin

      Thanks, you solved my problem, too, but it was even easier for me. After installing CSApprox, and running the help installation, it told me my terminal was not enough colors.  

      So, I searched for "gnome terminal colors", and found the bash command 
      export TERM="xterm-256color", 
      then my colorscheme (Murphy) looked good in Vim.  But it's nice to know about CSApprox in case I change in the future.

      Also, thanks to Chris for the nudge about EasyMotion.  I had installed it, but couldn't remember how it worked, so I was motivated enough to find out.  I'm a bit new to leader characters in Vim, and had forgotten what character I had changed it to (comma).  Maybe I need to start using it more - or changing things less.
