Unhappy nano-2.0.6 suse linux 10.0 Enterprise..

Hi all,
I have this problem. I am running suse linux 10.0 Enterprise.
I was able to install nano-2.0.6 and as root I am able to use it.

This is where my problem starts.
When I exit root and try to use nano, I get this error message.

nano: Command not found.
but when I type /usr/local/bin/./nano I am able to use it.

and since I am using tcsh shell I made a file called .cshrc and added the following:

setenv EDITOR/usr/local/bin/./nano ( which didn't work )
then I tried this also
setenv EDITOR/usr/local/bin/nano (which also didn't work)

can someone out there help this NEWBIE!!!!!

It looks like you don't have /usr/local/bin in your search path.

Do (as user);

which nano

If it comes back not found edit you .cshrc and add

set path = ( $path /usr/local/bin )

Open a new shell and do which nano again.
This time it should be found and you will be able to run it.

BTW the full command would be /usr/local/bin/nano (ie without the additional .)
