The command of change inner word is not working on my CIW machine whereas there are no custom settings made in VIM. Version 7.1.138 on Ubuntu 8.04 is the one i am using.
Can anyone tell me please why is this so?

You will need to open Vim and then enter
:version. You will be able to see if textobject has been enabled at compile time in your version of Vim.
Note that Debian/Ubuntu usually install vim-tiny by default. Therefore installing the vim package will give you the full version. There is also vim-gnome which was previously vim-full that has got the full version as well as a GUI version. According to what I know, Vim will always behave the same way regardless of whether you invoke it as vi.
Therefore make sure that you are working according to the instructions above.
