      Please install the required Curses (graphics library) package on your Linux distribution, before compiling the PacVim.

      $ sudo apt install libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev  [On Ubuntu/Debian]
      # yum install ncurses-devel                          [On CentOS/RHEL]
      # dnf install ncurses-devel                          [On Fedora]

    Tried it on CentOS7 and Debian 8. Got the same error after “make install

    make: g++: command not found
    : recipe for target 'src/avatar.o' failed
    make: *** [src/avatar.o] Error 127

    Any suggestions?

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Please install the needed build libraries on your CentOS 7 and Debian 8.

      # yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
      # apt-get install build-essential
