    Question [SOLVED] vimtutor won't start

    hello , I've used vimtutor a while back and just had to type it in the terminal and it started . since then I've switched from ubuntu 7.10 to 8.04 and now when I type "vimtutor" vim starts but is empty . I went into synaptic and searched for vimtutor and it's supposed to bundled with vim . Thank You tombo465

    you could try to remove vim and then reinstall incase the tutor file was somehow lost in the upgrade.

    i just ran vimtutor on 8.04 so it does work on it.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove vim
    
    sudo apt-get install vim

    Vimtutor gets his file from this location: /usr/share/vim/vim71/tutor/tutor

    I think it comes along with the vim-full package:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vim-full
