I would like to change it to Vundle since I didn’t know how to update the helptags after merging the commits from GitHub. Therefore, I followed the installation guide of Vundle. However, when I started updating, I got the following error.
Processing 'tpope/vim-fugitive' Error detected while processing function vundle#installer#new..<SNR>96_process.. vundle#installer#run..vundle#installer#install..<SNR>96_sync..<SNR>96_make_sync_ command..<SNR>96_get_current_origin_url..<SNR>96_system: line 1: E484: Can't open file C:/Temp/PortableApps/gVimPortable/Data/Temp/VIo985B.tmp Error detected while processing function vundle#installer#new..<SNR>96_process.. vundle#installer#run..vundle#installer#install..<SNR>96_sync: -- More -- SPACE/d/j: screen/page/line down, b/u/k: up, q: quit
How can I get the Vim plugin updates?
Google didn’t help this time. Not knowing what to do, I ran a
ls, and this failed.
C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\bash -c "ls" 'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. shell returned 1 Hit any key to close this window...
From the above output, one knows that the cause of this unexpected failure is the whitespace character in the path of Git Bash. As a result, I searched “vim ‘C:\Program’ is not recognized as an internal or external” in Google. Then I realised that it was a bug in Vim. Since I didn’t want to spend time setting up GVim again, I stick to GVim Portable, whose runpath is different from what many developers of Vim plugins, who use *nix, expect.
Invoke GVim from Command Prompt,Start Menu or desktop icon instead of
Git Bash because the
shell option will then be
cmd.exe, whose path
contains no spaces. Then everything should be fine, except the
Some developers include a
.gitignore file in their Vim plugins to
ignore files like
docs/tags, while some don’t. IMHO, it’s better
to have one.
One good point of free software is that users can interact with developers to report and discuss the problems, or even share their code to improve the software, for example, vim-octopress pull request #11.
