Vim editor on Endless OS


#1

How to get vim editor on endless? I already installed flatpak sdk.


#2

Vim is available at the Endless Store


#3

While on app center, there is also neovim available. I am installing that. Download url is dl.flathub.org and size is just 6.2MB. Installation failed multiple times due to download fail. Is there resume option and/or alternate way to install? it just stucks as some point like 10% or 24% and doesn’t move forward.

What version of Endless OS are you using?
To check which version of Endless OS you are in Settings :arrow_right: Details


#5

Version is 3.5.7
Also while it has failed two times it got hung and needed power reset. I am using iPhone usb tethering for Internet.


#6

In app center the new version is showing 3.5.8. On pressing download button it is not doing anything. From version 2 to 3 endless update is moved to app center where is it available now in app center?

Even on broadband same problem appears. But endless got updated to newer version. Somehow vim suddenly got installed after trying multiple times but neovim still facing same issue.

  1. Open the application called ‘Terminal’
  2. In this application run the command:
flatpak update --appstream
flatpak update -y
flatpak install flathub io.neovim.nvim -y && eos-add-to-desktop io.neovim.nvim

It worked with flatpak commands.
