Umm - I thnk that sailed right over my head...
I just installed mc on my laptop, and
sudo update-alternatives --config editor
showed mcedit as the selected editor. I knew of this because the same
thing happened on my other machines when I installed mc on them.
For example, suddenly "visudo" brought up "mcedit" instead of
"nano" ( notice that one would naturally expect visudo to bring up vi /
vim - but by default on Ubuntu it doesn't, since the alternative for
"editor" is nano by default, which makes for interesting experiences on IRC
me: OK , hit escape
me: to save the file and quit the editor type :wq!
newperson: that doesn't work either - what are you smoking?
