I'm trying to make some basic customizations to vim. All I want is some syntax highlighting, etc. Basically, not just plain text.
I have a basic
.vimrc file. It shows errors each time vim starts up and no text highlighting. My file consists of 7 lines:
backspace=2 syntax on filetype indent on set autoindent set number colorscheme desert set nobackup
Every time I launch vim, I get these errors:
E492: Not an editor command: backspace=2 E484: Can't open file /usr/share/vim/syntax/syntax.vim
For the first error, I have no idea what is wrong, but it probably isn't too tough for someone with some experience. The latter problem just might stem from the fact that I don't have a
/usr/share/vim folder. I would have thought that this would have been created when I installed vim. So, what do I do now?
