Syntax Highlighting Problems with vim

From Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

After upgrading from sarge to Etch, vim encountered a few problems. Namely:

Error detected while processing /usr/share/vim/vim70/syntax/syntax.vim:
line   42:
E216: No such group or event: filetypedetect BufRead
Press ENTER or type command to continue

To solve this:

vi /etc/vim/vimrc
#change:
set runtimepath=~/.vim/,~/.vim,/etc/vim,/usr/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/share/vim/addons,/usr/share/vim/vim63,/usr/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/share/vim/addons/after,~/.vim/after
#to:
set runtimepath=~/.vim/,~/.vim,/etc/vim,/usr/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/share/vim/addons,/usr/share/vim/vim70,/usr/share/vim/vimfiles,/usr/share/vim/addons/after,~/.vim/after

This is because, I chose to leave /etc/vim/vimrc with the old version when upgrading. The files in /usr/share/vim/vim63 changed to /usr/share/vim/vim70.
