Really I'm just looking for vim compiled with +ruby and when I installed vim.gtk3 it doesn't come compiled with it instead on :version it comes up as -ruby.

I'd like to use the vim-readability plugin, but it has a dependency on ruby and a ruby-library called odyssey so vim needs ruby integration to use it.

  • @Quasímodo No, actually I can’t seem to install ‘vim-gtk’ on a Ubuntu 20.04 live usb. (I was able to install ‘vim-gtk3’) – leeand00 Aug 4 at 18:11
  • @Quasímodo Correct. – leeand00 Aug 4 at 18:13
  • Darn yeah...unless someone else has something like a PPA. – leeand00 Aug 4 at 18:16

    @Quasímodo Never heard of it; I’ll take a look at it; I can compile stuff, but on a live usb? :\ – leeand00 Aug 4 at 18:23

You have two options:

  • Install vim-nox. From the package description (apt-cache show vim-nox),

    This package contains a version of vim compiled with support for
    scripting with Lua, Perl, Python 3, Ruby, and Tcl but no GUI.
    
  • Install vim-athena. From the package description (apt-cache show vim-athena),

    This package contains a version of vim compiled with a Athena GUI
    and support for scripting with Lua, Perl, Python 3, Ruby, and Tcl.
