Hi guys; 

I have a small question: whenever I fire up virsh and want to edit a 
domain, it launches vi and I would like it to be nano.  Although i 
configured .bashrc to contain EDITOR=/usr/bin/nano  and 
VISUAL=/usr/bin/nano , virsh seems not to care.  So I need to launch 
'EDITOR=/usr/bin/nano virsh' to get my wish fulfilled.  What am I doing 

I asked this question on #ubuntu-virt, but noone seems to post anything 
there except uvirtbot auto-messages about new bugs being posted on 

Kind regards,
