Nice! Call me lazy, but to decide which editor to open a text file with in Gnome I simply rightclick the file, select 'properties', go to the 'open with' tab and select the default app to open with from then on.

Thumbs down Possible correction

In the original article, it says to register
Code:
/etc/alternatives/myeditor
with KDE (or whatever). Shouldn't that be
Code:
/etc/alternatives/editor
based on the prior commands? I thought "myeditor" is just used as the name of the config file (in /var/lib/alternatives).
