(I am running Xubuntu 18.10.)
I want clipboard support in my Vim, which isn't present in the
vim package in apt, so I compiled Vim myself with
+clipboard. I then proceeded to install it using
checkinstall. This works fine.
However, after some time, I will notice my Vim no longer supports the clipboard.
vim --version shows
-clipboard; it's clear that it has reverted to the system version.
What could be causing this? Where can I look to figure out what is making my installed version disappear?
checkinstall produces a .deb file which I can install using the Software GUI app; but when it reverts, (my build of) Vim is no longer listed as installed in that app.
I am experiencing another issue with something happening periodically, which I include here only because it might be relevant. I have set proxy variables in various places including
/etc/profile.d/office_proxy.sh, because I need these for the office. When at home, I will typically manually go and comment all of these out & relog to disable the proxy. However, some time after logging in, the proxy variables will reinstate themselves. I'm 99% certain it's not a script of mine that is setting the proxy; I suspect Xubuntu is doing this somehow. Again, I only mention this here because this is another seemingly time-based behaviour.
