Change default Linux text editor from VI to Pico

pico

If only for the session just run this: export EDITOR=/usr/bin/pico

If you want to change it so every time it will use Pico do this:

Open the server command line

Run:

  1. export EDITOR=/usr/bin/pico
  2. pico ~/.bashrc

Add this line at the bottom of the file:

  1. export EDITOR=/usr/bin/pico

Save the file and your done.

This changes the server to always use Pico no matter when it’s being used.
