Has anyone succeeded in installing vim-latex plugin on top of yadr settings?

As suggested in


I tried using

$ yav -u https://github.com/vim-latex/vim-latex

and adding the recommended settings to my .vimrc file as instructed in


Naively, this completes the installation.

However, there should be something wrong as I cannot compile a simple tex file inside vim normal mode. More precisely, normal mode vim does not allows me to type \ll. So I assume that the installation is wrong or incomplete ... So any advice is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

  • What errors come up when you try using \ll? If nothing at all, could you post the output of :map \ll?

  • Hi! Thanks for answeing. :map \ll yields No mapping found and :scriptnames yields 231: ~/.yadr/vim/bundle/vim-latex/ftplugin/tex_latexSuite.vim ... 254: ~/.yadr/vim/bundle/vim-latex/ftplugin/latex-suite/packages/amsmath Any comments or clues are very welcome.

  • How about the output of :map ,ll? It looks like YADR makes your leader comma rather than backslash.

  • Many thanks, you are right! Replacing backslash by comma makes vim-latex work normally!

At the beggining of the vimrc for YADR, they remap the "leader" for plugins to comma.

Thus, the shortcut you're looking for is ,ll.
