Hi, I want use jedi-vim for autocompletion in vim. I have installed jedi vim with: dnf install vim-jedi now, if I open a python file I have the following error:

 Please install Jedi if you want to use jedi-vim.     
Premi INVIO o un comando per proseguire

if I open /usr/share/doc/vim-jedi/README, I read:

Documentation is available in your vim: ``:help jedi-vim``. You can also look                             
it up `on github <>`_.

if I type :help jedi-vim in vim I have got:

149: Spiacente, nessun aiuto per jedi-vim

that means: I am sorry I have not any jedi-vim help.

Anyone can help me ?

That means you have to install Jedi before you can use the jedi-vim plugin (vim-jedi).

As of now, it is not in Fedora's repositories yet, see here for Installation instructions:

As it says in the message, you can find the help file here: .It also talk about the Requirements of the plugin.

I think that jedi is installed. Its name should be python2-jedi.

# rpm -qa|grep -i jedi

So, it actually is in the repos. Install python3-jedi as well. Interestingly, python3-jedi shows no build in any repos (same as python2-jedi. Did you get python2-jedi by installing pyhton-jedi(

You can also try updating to the recent build from updates-testing

ok, Solved. I have to add the following setting to .vimrc:

python3 import jedi

You can use python2 or python3... I have installed python3-jedi because in .vimrc I have the powerline plugin that run on python3 Thank you.
