I'm using pathogen (from the Ubuntu 16.04 vim-pathogen package) and a git clone of vimtex in ~/.vim/bundle/vimtex/. Now :help vimtex does not work. I can read ~/.vim/bundle/vimtex/doc/vimtex.txt, but vim displays it as plain text and thus the tags do not work for navigation.

Run :Helptags after installing a new package. Then :help vimtex works.
