I tried to install vim from source. I do not have sudo rights.
So, i cloned the last revision from github, and configured as follows:
./configure \ --with-features=huge \ --enable-multibyte \ --enable-pythoninterp=dynamic \ --enable-python3interp=dynamic \ --with-python-config-dir=$PY_CONFIG \ --with-python3-config-dir=$PY3_CONFIG \ --enable-gui=gtk2 \ --enable-cscope \ --prefix=$HOME/.local $@
Then I did
make && make install.
All went great. Now, unfortunately, when I try to take my first steps with vim, and do
~/.local/bin/vimtutor, It complains that it can't find the corresponding page:
Error detected while processing command line: E484: Can't open file /usr/share/vim/vim74/tutor/tutor.vim
I am baffled how it thinks that I might have vim 7.4, and managed to mess up it's paths like that - because it installed the corresponding files, as was to be expected, in
Tips on whether I have not yet grasped how to build software like vim with make locally the right way, would be also very appreciated :) I'm new to the whole linux stuff...
Thanks a lot!
