Hi,

 The thing is, there is an *optional* dependency on VTE. From the README:

"Install the Ruby bindings to GTK and GNOME (for the VTE terminal). [...]
You don't need VTE: if it's not installed, VimMate will not have terminals
but will run anyway."

 So it's optional but it's not supposed to crash when VTE isn't available:
it's supposed to work but without the terminals! :)

 I'll correct this bug and VTE will remain optional.

 Thanks for your report!

 Guillaume
