[solved] vimpager
« on: November 15, 2014, 02:34:06 pm »
What is the most canonical way to install vimpager?

Is it a part of the vim package?

How do I search for a package by a file it contains?

TIA
-Kevin

There's no "canonical way"...

Just make sure you have build-essential, linux-headers-generic, and vim installed
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic vim

Download the ZIP archive from here:
https://github.com/rkitover/vimpager
("Download ZIP" button on right of page)

Unpack it

change dir3ectory to the unpacked 'vimpager-master' directory

and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo make install

Then follow the instructions in the README file about adding the 3 lines to your
~/.bashrc
file

That worked.  I might want to add that I got the message:

*** PLEASE INSTALL 'uudecode', falling back to *VERY SLOW* shell version.

so had to install sharutils.
