I'm a Ubuntu 11.04, 64bit user. I have installed vim via apt-get and I need to install plugins, so after the installation process was done, I looked for .vim dicectory in $HOME, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Can anyone please help me figure out where the vim directory is?

create it by

% mkdir ~/.vim

(or any other means).

I create manually .vim and how do I install the vim plugins, do I manually create the plugin directory and put the files in there? – haunted85 Jul 25 '11 at 9:00
yes. or just "unzip" the files in the .vim folder. – akira Jul 25 '11 at 10:13
It depends on the plugin. A tarball have to be extracted by hand, a vimball need to be sourced from vim, or you may also use a plugins manager like vim-addon-manager, pathogen, etc. – Luc Hermitte Jul 25 '11 at 15:51
