Bug Description


scvim doesn't work out of the box. scvim is sourcing /usr/share/scvim/scvimrc by default.
line 13: let g:sclangTerm = "xterm -e". xterm is not present in puredyne.

solution 1)
cp /usr/share/scvim/scvimrc ~/.scvimrc
chage line 13 to:
let g:sclangTerm = "urxvt -e"

solution 2)
symlink urxvt to xterm

Hi - could you tell us which system you're using please?
 * Is this on puredyne carrot+coriander (9.10 or 9.11), puredyne gazpacho (10.10alpha), or something else? If "something else", then what - if it's ubuntu, which version?
 * What version of supercollider?

In the puredyne PPA, the current version of supercollider is 3.4.4 and it appears not to have this issue. So I think it's quite possible that it's an "old" issue...

I used the version the offical the download link provides: Puredyne 9.11 DVD i386.

BTW: I use the 'bzr branch lp:bouilloncube' method to get a booting USB-Stick. With the iso mentioned above, the script build grub for the new version gazpacho (sh/grub2/ .

Grub2 has a wrong menu title ( with '.. gazpacho') and tries to load /live/vmlinuz1and /live/initrd1.img which does not exist. It should be /live/vmlinuz and /live/initrd.img (like configured in sh/grub2/

In the Result boot fails, I corrected it manualy.

best regards

OK thanks - I think the scvim issue is something we've fixed in a later version - so I'm going to close this tracker item.

Also thanks for the note about bouilloncube. I copied it to a new Bug #852049
