new to linux : x window text editor
first and foremost hello
I have installed fedora core 4.
i would like to know what is the default text editor for xwindow? other than emacs.. xedit is not available and I have to edit some files and emacs is too complicated to use.
what is the command to delete a folder or a file in a folder?
that's all for now.. thank you .
well, any ascii text reading app will edit your text files...kword, openoffice, etc etc.
to remove files:
to remove empty folder:
to remove full folder
rm -r foldername
Use vim, it is quite powerful and easy to learn. There is a nice tutorial that comes with it.
Mind to add a space after the 'rm' and 'rmdir' commands.
Have a look at : man rm.
gedit is also a good one, a little more gui than vim. Be careful with rm command, there is no "recycle bin" it is a permanent delete. Also, if you want to remove a dir with a lot of stuff in it use the rm -f option to no be constantly asked wheter or not you want to delete it.
I think some basic google skills are lacking here.
for an editor you could use gedit or gvim
When I first learned linux I found the following website to be helpful: www.linux.org
I am going to check all those things out;.
you are so kind :)
