    I can't get eclim to work after trying to follow the installation guide . The Java Eclim installer ran successfully, but executing $ $ECLIPSE_HOME/eclimd in Terminal per the guide's directions only returns
    -bash: /eclimd: No such file or directory


    And trying to PingEclim in vim's CLI returns:

    unable to connect to eclimd (port: 9091) - connect: Connection refused


    I'm a first year CS student learning Java at uni, and I'd really like to have Eclipse's IDE features in my vim.

    Help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    You need to set the $ECLIPSE_HOME env variable in your .bash_profile (or equivalent) or just use the absolute path.

    Thanks! I don't know what a env variable is; I was confused and assumed $ECLIPSE_HOME was some sort of directory. I got eclim to install.

    Many thanks.
