I am trying to install plugin for python in vim,but i am unable to do that. I removed vi tiny from Raspberry pi and installed vi 8.0 I followed instruction from this site


I updated my vimrc file from sudo user in folder /home/etc/vim/vimrc

added these lines in vimrc file.

set nocompatible              " required
filetype off                  " required

" set the runtime path to include Vundle and initialize
set rtp+=~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim
call vundle#begin()

" alternatively, pass a path where Vundle should install plugins
"call vundle#begin('~/some/path/here')

" let Vundle manage Vundle, required
Plugin 'gmarik/Vundle.vim'

" add all your plugins here (note older versions of Vundle
" used Bundle instead of Plugin)

" ...

" All of your Plugins must be added before the following line
call vundle#end()            " required
filetype plugin indent on    " required

whenever I trying to install plugin I get an error E942: Not an editor command: PluginInstall

    If you get not an editor command it means that Vundle is not properly installed or not properly added to Vim's runtime path and thus it doesn't know the :PluginInstall command. You could check that the git clone of Vundle created a directory in ~/.vim/bundle/Vundle.vim, check that Vundle and your vimrc are shown in the result of :scriptname and give us a feedback on that. (Also set nocompatible is not required: if you have a .vimrc file, then it sets nocompatible for you so you're better off without it, it has nothing to do with your problem but it's still good to know) – statox Jul 20 '18 at 12:41
  • No vundle in :scriptname please help me – Himanshu Jul 20 '18 at 13:07
  • The path to your vimrc file looks strange. Is your user called etc? Is $HOME the folder /home/etc? Either way your vimrc file should be in ~/.vim/vimrc. Notice the dot! – Lucas Jul 21 '18 at 21:05
  • vimrc path in raspberry pi is /home/etc/vim/vmrc – Himanshu Jul 22 '18 at 6:38
