I have installed and configured vim latex-suite successfully. However whenever i try to type ":\rf" in normal mode i get an error "E10 : \ should be followed by /,? or &" . Could anyone tell me what i am missing here ? I am following this beginners guide .

Ok! That was indeed an awkward question! I did not know that typing "\rf" "In normal mode, in Vim" means just typing ":normal \rf" in the Escape mode, and not only "\rf" or ": \rf". This what happens when learning vim-latex suite before fully understanding Vim.

    Or just type \rf in the normal mode (i.e., do not precede it with :)
