I've installed Ubuntu Server but I have only
How do i install
aptitude install vim but it said it's always installed.
vim is a soft link to
vim-nox package if you do not need a GUI, else try
vim-gtk. There are a number of vim packages compiled with different feature-sets:
% apt-cache search vim | grep vim- jvim-canna - Japanized VIM (Canna version) jvim-doc - Documentation for jvim (Japanized VIM) vim-addon-manager - manager of addons for the Vim editor vim-gtk - Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor - with GTK2 GUI vim-latexsuite - view, edit and compile LaTeX documents from within Vim vim-nox - Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor vim-scripts - plugins for vim, adding bells and whistles vim-syntax-gtk - Syntax files to highlight GTK+ keywords in vim vim-vimoutliner - script for building an outline editor on top of Vim vim-common - Vi IMproved - Common files vim-dbg - Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor (debugging symbols) vim-doc - Vi IMproved - HTML documentation vim-gnome - Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor - with GNOME2 GUI vim-gui-common - Vi IMproved - Common GUI files vim-runtime - Vi IMproved - Runtime files vim-tiny - Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor - compact version vim-rails - plugins for vim to allow easier editing of Rails Applications
This is what I usually install:
sudo apt-get install vim vim-scripts vim-doc vim-latexsuite vim-gui-common vim-gnome
In the past, there used to be a package called "vim-full"...
Run these commands in a terminal:
sudo apt-get build-dep gnome-vim sudo apt-get install gnome-vim
