Or, you can set preferred applications from Nautilus by right-clicking
relevant files, going to Properties (at the bottom) in the context menu,
and setting your preferred editor in "Open With" - ( hit "Add" ). You can
type in the path to gvim, or whatever you prefer, as a custom command if
the one you want does not appear as an option. Click the button for your
preferred editor that appears in the iist, to select it as default.
