Recently, I needed to build Vim from source to use a plugin that required Lua interpreting. This worked fine on my laptop, but my tower computer is having some issues. Any time I run Vim, I recieve the message:
Error detected while processing /home/XXXXXX/.vim/vimrc: line 55: E484: Can't open file /usr/share/vim/vim74/syntax/syntax.vim
Not surprisingly, Vim then fails to highlight syntax, and throws a bunch of other errors when editing text.
Having done some research myself, I can tell that syntax.vim is actually in
/usr/local/share/vim/vim74/syntax/syntax.vim, as opposed to the previously mentioned directory. How can I solve this?
Vim was installed using
checkinstall. To compile it, I ran the commands:
./configure --with-features=huge --enable-cscope --enable-pythoninterp=yes --with-python-config-dir=/usr/lib/python2.7/config-x86_64-linux-gnu --enable-multibyte --enable-fontset --disable-gui --disable-netbeans --enable-luainterp=yes --with-lua-prefix=/usr/include/lua5.1 --enable-largefile make VIMRUNTIMEDIR=/usr/share/vim/vim74
