I installed vim-gnome on ubuntu. I notice that things I put in my $HOME/.vimrc file, like colorscheme and so on, are being overwritten by something else. If I start Vim, another colorscheme is used, but if I then do ":source ~/.vimrc", the settings that I want load properly.
Here's my .vimrc:
set t_Co=256 set paste set number syntax on colorscheme zenburn
When I do :scriptnames, I see what seems to me to be a lot of things being run on startup (it takes a couple of seconds too...):
1: /usr/share/vim/vimrc 2: /usr/share/vim/vim72/debian.vim 3: /usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/syntax.vim 4: /usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/synload.vim 5: /usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/syncolor.vim 6: /usr/share/vim/vim72/filetype.vim 7: /etc/vim/vimrc.local 8: /home/tom/.vim/colors/zenburn.vim 9: /home/tom/.vimrc 10: /usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/nosyntax.vim 11: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/CSApprox.vim 12: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/Light.vim 13: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/codeburn.vim 14: /home/tom/.vim/colors/Light.vim 15: /home/tom/.vim/autoload/csapprox.vim 16: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/coffee.vim 17: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/color_sample_pack.vim 18: /home/tom/.vim/plugin/ir_black.vim 19: /home/tom/.vim/colors/coffee.vim 20: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/getscriptPlugin.vim 21: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/gzip.vim 22: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/matchparen.vim 23: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/netrwPlugin.vim 24: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/rrhelper.vim 25: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/spellfile.vim 26: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/tarPlugin.vim 27: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/tohtml.vim 28: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/vimballPlugin.vim 29: /usr/share/vim/vim72/plugin/zipPlugin.vim
I guess some of these are overriding the things loaded from .vimrc. (CSApprox is one that I have in my .vim/plugins, but most of the others I haven't "chosen" to run at startup.
How can I change this so that what's in .vimrc overrules the other stuff? (Or, how can I stop so much stuff from being run at startup?)
