I am using the windows subsystem for Linux and recently installed vim latex (latex-suite). I was following the tutorial and typed
:let g:Tex_CompileRule_dvi = 'latex -src-specials -interaction=nonstopmode $*'
in gvims command line. However when I type
\ls nothing happens. It just says
:call Tex_ForwardSearchLaTeX(). I am using xdvik as my viewer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also - I tried the same thing in an Ubuntu virtual machine and I get the same problem. I thought it might be the viewer but the official website says that xdvik supports forward searching.
