I am using vim for some time now and wanted to start using it for my latex files as well. Since the tutorials on the vim-latex homepage use the gui version of vim to include templates etc., I thought I might try that as well. Said and done, I installed GVim (tried vim-gnome as well as vim-gtk from the official repos), however the menubar is not working, thus defeating the whole purpose of using easy drop down menus instead of memorizing the additional vim-latex commands.
For example even something simple like File -> Exit (which corresponds to the CLI command
:qa) does not work and nothing happens. My current vi version is 7.4.1689, the OS I am using is Ubuntu 16.04. As a side note I noticed the following errors when starting GVim from a terminal:
(gvim:5929): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library
as well as the following message upon closing it:
(gvim:5929): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: cannot retrieve class for invalid (unclassed) type '<invalid>'
I hope that I stated my problem in an understandable manner, if some additional information is needed to analyze the problem I am happy to provide it. If this is an already known bug/issue (although my online search didn't imply so), I would be glad to be directed to the discussions regarding this issue.
