I use the auto complete function from this stackoverflow page. It works fine on my pc and notebook but it fails on my raspberry pi with this error:

line   28:
E474: Invalid argument: completeopt=menu,menuone,noinsert

Why doesn't it work? Whats the problem ?

  • It's noselect.

The noinsert option became available with Vim version 7.4.775. Your Vim on the raspberry pi is (probably) older. You can check with :version.
