syntax highlighting in vim in Ubuntu

Today I finally noticed that syntax highlighting wasn't working in vim in Ubuntu. Installing vim-full and adding syntax on to ~/.vimrc did the trick.

Carl, I'm dissapointed in you. Vim?? It's like I don't even know you anymore.

Heh. Yes, many things have changed.

But I still use fluxbox.

Good man. Are you using Fluxbox ontop of Ubuntu? Or Fluxbuntu?

VIM.....tisk, tisk, tisk.

I'd never heard of Fluxbuntu. Maybe I'll give it a try--thanks.

As the headline says "Using gnu linux through creative laziness"

Really lazy people spend a bit of effort learning how to do it properly. Thus minimising future effort and maximising time at the beach.

VIM only for the creatively lazy!
