I'm running ArchLinux using the xfce4 terminal with vim-latex. Using this setup, I tried to follow the instructions here to conceal latex commands with unicode. However, after much effort, I still cannot get any concealing.

I followed all the directions from above, namely put

set cole=2
let g:tex_conceal="adgm"

in my ~/.vimrc file.

However, there is no difference even when I try type :set cole=2 manually in vim.

At first, I thought it might be because xfce4-terminal is having trouble with utf-8, but I then tried to edit .tex files in rxvt-unicode which definitely supports utf-8. Still, there wasn't any change. I also checked that indeed my vim is compiled with the +conceal option.

Is there something that I'm doing wrong?
