I've created a thread to solve my problem regarding code completion problem in vim. I planned to clean all vim, omnicompletion, and all the dependencies. I was following a guide for autocompletion purpose. How do I clean all of them? I need to do this because I want to reinstall the stuff hoping the autocompletion problem will solve.

In the process of reinstalling the autocompletion stuff which I use the previous link, I got confused wheather I should put the configuration in ~/.vimrc file (created by myself) or the one which is already available located in /usr/share/vim (named as vimrc).

Hope somebody can guide me on this matter.

Always edit your ~/.vimrc file. If you mess with /usr/share/vim, you will affect other users on the system.

Upon reinstalling, I need to create our own .vim directory and .vimrc file, right? By default, for new installation, I don't see them. I just want to confirm my understanding..

Following this link "", your omnicppcomplete is 0.41, or 0.4 version?

My version is 0.41. All of my configurations are posted on my github account. You can actually just check it out, if you are interested.

You have to create the ~/.vimrc file and the ~/.vim directories
