How do I go about installing the runtime version of Vim?


1 Answer 1


Ubuntu ships vim-tiny by default. To get the real deal (which includes vim-runtime), simply run the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install vim

I would normally include a Software Center link, but you seem like a pretty technical fellow. ;)
