System: fresh install of Debian 11 (Bullseye), KDE-minimal, neovim-qt
I’m a long-time vi/vim/gvim user who is switching to nvim/nvin-qt.
I’m unable to get the spell-check popup menu (mouse right-click) to appear in nvim/nvim-qt.
Below is my test “~/.config/nvim/init.vim” file:
" Enable mouse support set mouse=a "set mouse=nv " Enable mouse right-click popup menu showing work options "behave mswin "behave xterm "set mousemodel=popup_setpos set mousemodel=popup " Enable spell checking "setlocal spell spelllang=en_us set spell " TEST SENTENCE: " Here is a misspelled word: mispeled
Using “nvim ~/.config/nvim/init.vim”, I’ve tried:
- nvim and nvim-qt
- two types of terminals (Konsole and Termit)
- multiple combinations of “init.vim” parameters
nvim is detecting the misspelled word above (misspelled word is highlighted).
Unfortunately, nvim fails to produce the spell-check popup menu (mouse right-click).
I’ve searched through the documentation for differences between vim and nvim: Nvim documentation: vim_diff
Unfortunately, I’ve failed to find a difference that explains this problem.
What am I doing wrong in my setup?
Any help appreciated.
P.S. Also, is there a “newbie” sub-forum for nvim? My question is basic and I dislike wasting advanced peoples time with it.
