I installed vim-latex using pathogen following the very clear instructions proposed in: How to install vim-latex?

However, when I open a .tex file using MacVim, I get the following error message:

Error detected while processing ~/.vim/bundle/vim-latex-1.8.23-20130116.788-git2ef9956/ftplugin/latex-suite/texviewer.vim:

import string, vim, re, os, glob
ImportError: No module named string

I don't really know if it helps, but since import StringIO looked like python syntax, I checked on the shell to see if my python had such module and it does.

I am using MacVim on a Mac running Mavericks. Thank you so much!

The problem was that macvim was not binding correctly to python. This sequence of commands solved it on yosemite for me, and made automatic latex plugin work as well: 1) brew install macvim 2) brew linkapps macvim 3) easy_install pip 4) pip install psutil
