How to Install VIM (Visual editor IMproved) on Fedora 22



Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing VIM (Visual editor IMproved or Vi IMproved), an open-source text editor, on Fedora 22.
  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 22 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.

Perhaps you received the error: -bash: vim: command not found… to resolve it, follow the instructions below!

Step #1: The Installation

As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages:

dnf -y update

Then let’s install VIM (Visual editor IMproved) and any required packages:

dnf -y install vim-enhanced

Step #2: Verify the Application is Available

Now verify that the application is available by using the following command:

vim

~ type :help or for on-line help
~ type :help version7 for version info

Step #3: Learn about VIM!
