I'm currently trying to customize my vim setup, which involves installing new plugins. So I've edited my ~/.vimrc in order to install those plugins:

call plug#begin('~/.vim/plugin/bundle')                                                    
Plug 'gmarik/Vundle.vim'                                                                   
Plug 'tmhedberg/SimpylFold'                                                                
Plug 'nvie/vim-flake8'                                                                     
Plug 'lervag/vimtex'                                                                       
Plug 'xolox/vim-misc'                                                                      
Plug 'xolox/vim-notes'                                                                     
call plug#end()·

However, when I type :PlugInstall, none of those plugins are listed. I need to execute the :Plug <pluginName> and then :PlugInstall again. But as soon as I exit vim and come back, plug-ins are gone. But they exist in the folder named in the beginning of the .vimrc file ('~/.vim/plugin/bundle').

I've been trying some all sorts of things but I'm out of options now...

Thank you very much!

  • Do you have a plug#begin block in any other Vim configuration file?

Following muru's comment, I've searched for other vim files, and I found a .vimrc.bundles file, where everything is listed.
