    Hi, I do this changes in my vimrc file of VIM and save this, but when i create new bash file with command “vim“, file created but when i want to run this sh file, system show me Error “permission denied“.

    • Aaron Kili says:


      Check the file permissions, ensure that you have made the script executable like this:

      $ chmod +x

      and that the directory in which you have stored it has permissions to allow you run it.

    On RHEL (and it’s derivatives) simple running /usr/bin/vi invokes the small version that does not include the autocmd feature.

    To get the autocmd feature one needs to run the huge version – /usr/bin/vim.
