I am trying to compile vim from source with python or python3, but they are never present after installation. I am following the instructions from youcompleteme wiki and have installed VIM - Vi IMproved 8.0, more specifically version 8.0.579.
I copy pasted the
./configure and found out that I don't have my python config file where the guide said I should. So I used
which python to see where python is. And sure enough I found the file in
/usr/bin/python3.5-config and changed the
./configure script. I found vim80 in
/usr/local/share/vim/vim80 so there is where I sat my
VIMRUNTIMEDIR. Then I did
sudo make install. No errors. And no Python...
How do I add python to vim80? Am I selecting the wrong python config file? I have installed all the dependencies mentioned at the top of the GitHub page and uninstalled any previous vim installations, as well as searched for the folders where they were previously so the previous installation is completely removed to avoid messing with the new vim80.
