I have pathogen setup however when it finishes loading I have to press the Enter key as shown in this screen shot.
enter image description here

Is there a way how to disable the 'Press Enter or type command to continue' prompt but keep it when other shell scripts are run usng the .vimrc file or another method?

I have had a look at How can I suppress the "press enter" prompt when opening files in diff mode? however the answer looks like it disables the prompt for all scripts when I want it disabled only when pathogen loads.

    The only think in my vimrc file for pathogen is execute pathogen#infect() and it does not ask me to hit enter. Are you invoking it differently? Commented Mar 11, 2015 at 18:24

Change the call pathogen#runtime_append_all_bundles() line in your vimrc to call pathogen#infect(), as the message suggests.

  • You may have escaped the Press ENTER gremlin for now, but sooner or later he will be back. When that happens, check out :h press-enter for some tips to avoid him! Commented Mar 12, 2015 at 17:58
