How to enable vim syntax highlighting in Ubuntu 12.04

There are much information on the internet, about how to enable syntax highlighting in Ubuntu.
Some of them advice using the command :syntax=on, another saying about installing vim-full.
These advises are valid for earlier versions of Ubuntu, but not for the 12.04.
So in order to enable syntax highlighting one has to install vim-gnome and it will be enabled automatically:
sudo apt-get install vim-gnome
