While trying to configure a RaspberryPI as a development machine for use with my iPad, I ran into a weird issue: When I connected using Blink.sh and Mosh, NeoVIM for some reason had completely broken coloring with background colors being extremely intense green/blue instead of … grey 😑
Turns out, truecolor support was only added with Mosh 1.4 last October. Ubuntu 22.02 didn’t have that (obviously) and so colors via SSH looked fine but were broken via Mosh. Luckily, there’s a PPA available that makes dev-builds available which fixed my problem!
