Yes but until you pointed me to it, I didn't know I was right ! ;-)
Well okay, "vim-gnome", should have rung a bell at least, but I must
confess, I looked very very very quickly in Synaptic, and was really
expecting to find 'gvim', so I didn't pay any attention to 'vim-gnome'
at first... until you pointed me to it, and it suddenly made sense ;-)
Still, it's strange that the package is called this way, and it's not
even available from the application installer (no .desktop file I
guess...). Soon they will rename 'gedit' into 'edit-gnome', and in
Dapper Drake I will spend weeks just to find my text editor ! ;o)
