Gui vim on Mac OSX doesn't follow .gvimrc or .vimrc's settings....
- Hello again,
This is my situation... I have a .vimrc and .gvimrc that both
contain these settings:
Raven:~ untz$ cat .gvimrc
set guifont=Bitstream\ Vera\ Sans\ Mono\ 20
My vim6.3 is located under /Applications/Vim.app
Now, when I go to the command line and type "gvim",
gvim 6.3 (the gui vim) appears... You could tell its the gui one because of
the menus that are located on top. It however, doesn't adhere to any of my
settings in .vimrc or .gvimrc
When I type "vim" from the command line, it appears to have adhered to the
settings (e.g. set nu! & the increased font size) set in my .vimrc and
.gvimrc, but its still not the gui vim with the menus
(Vim File Edit Tools Syntax Buffers Window Help) up on top.
Why doesn't the gui vim work with my .gvimrc's settings (e.g. set nu!)?
What I am trying to convey is that the terminal vim is listening to the
instructions set forth in the configuration files (.gvimrc & vimrc), but the
gVim (gui vim) isn't...... That makes me think that there's another set of
files laying around that are overriding my personal .gvim & .vimrc files.
My .bash_profile is:
Raven:~ untz$ cat .bash_profile
export JAVA_HOME CATALINA_HOME PATH VIMRUNTIME
My .profile settings are:
Raven:~ untz$ cat .profile
alias gvim="/Applications/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g"
test -r /sw/bin/init.sh && . /sw/bin/init.sh
Is there a way I can launch the gui vim and permanently set something in its
config file by click on the : (esc key) and typing set nu! (along with some
additional argument, such as -g)?
If anyone can help, I would be most appreciative....

Since you're already spamming the list, we may as well do this properly.
Please send the list a copy of a message you're getting, including all
the headers, so we can see what address is the true recipient. With that
available, you should be able to unsubscribe yourself.
> So please be so kind to unsubscribe me.For nearly every mailing list I've been on, the tools for subscribing
and unsubscribing are made plainly available to the subscriber. For
nearly every mailing list I've been on, an administrative message was
sent describing how to unsubscribe in the future. Did you save yours?
Presumably not, or you would have been able to take care of this by
yourself several weeks ago.
Sorry Gerd, but you put yourself in this situation, and most of the
readers of this list can't get you out of it -- if you can't figure it
out yourself, only the list admin can help, not the list subscribers.
The best thing for you to do would be to track down and follow the
instructions for leaving the list; if you can't find them, you can
always get a new copy by re-subscribing and then un-subscribing twice.
