Environment: CentOS 8
Question: When I enter
sudo crontab -e it opens in Vim. However Nano is set as the default editor and for every other type of file it is used as expected. Why might this be? Is there a way around this?
Background: I followed these steps to make Nano the default editor.
# nano /root/.bashrc
I added these lines and saved the file.
export EDITOR='nano' export VISUAL='nano'
This is what the entire file consists of.
# .bashrc # User specific aliases and functions alias rm='rm -i' alias cp='cp -i' alias mv='mv -i' # Source global definitions if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then . /etc/bashrc fi export EDITOR='nano' export VISUAL='nano'
I used this command to make the change active.
# source /root/.bashrc
