I recently tried to install vim-limp from the AUR by building the package which worked fine. This was after I tried running the .sh file for the vim plugin from vim.org which did not work despite the fact that I had all the dependencies installed including the Common Lisp Hyperspec which I also built from the AUR. However, when I tried to run limp in a .lisp file by pressing <F12> as you are supposed to nothing happened.
I then followed the steps from:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/17774 which had no effect either.
I also tried making symlinks per the instructions in section 2.3 in:
However that too had no effect.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
If I try installing from the install.sh file instead of the AUR package I get:
Installing Limp 0.3.4 to /usr/local/limp/0.3.4... * symlink /usr/local/limp/0.3.4 -> /usr/local/limp/latest * symlink /root/.vim/ftplugin/lisp -> /usr/local/limp/latest * generating Lisp thesaurus... Couldn't open /usr/share/doc/hyperspec/Front/X_AllSym.htm for input: No such file or directory at ./regenerate-hyperspec-thesaurus.pl line 42. Done.
Limp has many dependencies:
Vim7.x with +eval
rlwrap for SBCL command-line editing
UNIX SCREEN for SBCL communication
The Common Lisp Hyperspec for the For the Lisp thesaurus
Perl for generating the Lisp thesaurus
"rlwrap" and "sbcl" can be found in community and extra
"cl-hyperspec" can be found in AUR, careful though you have to edit the package build. Follow this:
"Please consider using "$srcdir" and "$pkgdir" instead of $startdir/src and $startdir/pkg to make this work with non-default BUILDDIR in /etc/makepkg.conf. Double-quoting the variables will also allow spaces in the paths."
Hey. Thanks for the reply but I figured out how to use slimv quite well. Also I'm kind of currently of Lisp and messing around with around with Haskell (when I have time). But thanks anyway.
