How To Install VIM (Vi IMproved) on Fedora 23

Pre-Flight Check

  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing VIM (Visual editor IMproved or Vi IMproved), an open-source text editor, on Fedora 23.
  • We’ll be working as root on a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 23 server. If you need to install vim on Fedora 22, visit this tutorial.
  • If you’ve received the error “-bash: vim: command not found” while following any of our other tutorials, following the instructions below will resolve it.

Step #1: The Installation

As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages:

dnf -y update

Then we’ll install VIM (Visual editor IMproved) and any required packages:

dnf -y install vim-enhanced

Step #2: Verify the Application is Available

Now verify that the application is available by using the following command:

vim

Running that code should result in output similar to the following:
