SLACKWARE TIPS ( 5 )
( Vi behavior and the plugdev group )


Vi

If you want a better behaving Vi ( with syntax highlighting and proper backspace behavior ) do this:

CODE
# ln -sf /usr/bin/vim /usr/bin/vi
# cp /usr/share/vim/vim71/vimrc_example.vim /usr/share/vim/vimrc


NOTE: The /vim71 in the command above is for the version of vi in Slackware 12.0 . . . . if you use another version of Slackware adapt the command to the version of vim installed.




CD / DVD

In Slackware 12.0, whenever you insert a cd or dvd, konqueror asks if you want to open it and then you'll get the error:

The solution is to add your username to the "plugdev" group and reboot. Here is how that is done: The Groups Command
