How can I set
gedit to be default editor in
When I hit F4,
gedit should be used rather than
mc's default editor.
To extend the answer by Kevin Panko and to address the comment to that answer by Eugen Konkov, I would like to share my workaround for Midnight Commander ignoring arguments in
$EDITOR. Instead of passing arguments in
$EDITOR definition directly, one can define an editor command with arguments in a script and set
$EDITOR to that script.
For example, to ensure that each instance of vim has a servername, I use:
/usr/local/bin/vim --servername VIM "$@"
