Check under the /home/yourname/.mc directory for a file 
just called ini. In mine it has the following line:


When I press F4 on a file I get cooledit as my default 
built-in editor.

See also

# man mcedit

for details of the built-in default mc editor, which is 
called cooledit.

I can also run the mc editor as a stand-alone editor,
by typing


at the command line. This is on Fedora Core 6.

Kind Regards
