Any ideas?

dmcgee at galway ~
$ vim .vimrc
Error detected while processing /home/dmcgee/.vimrc:
line   64:
E185: Cannot find color scheme inkpot
Press ENTER or type command to continue

dmcgee at galway ~
$ locate inkpot

For reference, here is some of my .vimrc:

if has("gui_running")
	if has("gui_gtk2")
		set guifont=DejaVu\ Sans\ Mono\ 12
	colorscheme desert
	set columns=80 lines=40
	colorscheme inkpot

And a quick guess, it looks like the new vim package puts its colors here:

Any reason the old /usr/share/vim/ shouldn't be on the default runtimepath?
