I had a problem with an arrow keys in Ubuntu (known as the A B C D problem). All advices I have found does not help me to resolve this bug. So, I deside to reinstall vim totaly. After I install it with «sudo apt-get install vim», it's doesn't create .vim folder & .vimrc file in my home… So when I install Akita set of addons it's does not work and my vim runs totaly clear without any highlighting and so on…

How to fix this bug. Where could be .vim && .vimrc folders and files?

The global vim configuration file is at /etc/vimrc, local, if it has been created, is hidden in your home folder (~/.vimrc). Article open vimrc file
