I am using VIM 7.4 on an Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit machine. In my .vimrc file, I have the following lines:
" Use UTF-8 without BOM set encoding=utf-8 nobomb
config file basically uses Unicode character to display white spaces like tabs, new lines, etc. The complete .vimrc file is taken from Paul Irish's dotfiles.
On an earlier install of 14.04 as well as in previous distributions, I was able to see the unicode characters without any problems but not with this one.
I also tried:
But, the above setting has no effect and I still see garbled characters on the screen. Is there any way around this?
