error on zsh when using vim and autocomplete

Posted on

do you use zsh and ohmyzsh ?

do you run into an issue when you are about to edit a file with vim, and you use the Tab key to autocomplete the filename, but instead you get something like this:

$ vim ~/filena<TAB>
_arguments:448: _vim_files: function definition file not found

annoying af, right ?

how to fix it

here's how to fix it: delete the zcompdump directory off your personal directory, and reload your zsh config file (or close and open a new shell).

rm -rf ~/.zcompdump*; source ~/.zshrc;

it took me at least 15 mins to find that .... hopefully i save some time for you .
