I would like to enable Vim's clientserver support for the vimtex call back mechanism. If possible only installing apt packages, I installed the following:

sudo apt install vim
sudo apt install vim-nox

But I still have the following when I look at vim --version:

paul@castanea:~/rp/paulrougieux.github.io$ vim --version
VIM - Vi IMproved 8.1 (2018 May 18, compiled Jun 15 2019 16:41:15)
Included patches: 1-875, 878, 884, 948, 1046, 1365-1368, 1382, 1401

Huge version without GUI.  Features included (+) or not (-):

I would like to enable the clientserver feature. Is that possible by installing an apt package on debian?


As explained in this 2004 bug report:

sudo apt install vim-gtk

Adds +clientserver support to vim.
