rshell and Geany

Post by tsjoiner » Sat Sep 29, 2018 1:44 am

I am testing various non-default editors with rshell. Nano and Leafpad open edit and save no problem. Geany is giving me some trouble. If I use the --editor geany option when invoking rshell I can edit and save to the temporary file. If an instance of Geany is already open then I am unable to save the file. The option [geany -i] will open a new instance and solve this problem - I hope. Is it possible to include this Geany option within rshell invocation?

Code: Select all

rshell --editor [geany -i] --buffer-size=30 -p /dev/ttyUSB0

Good solution - does what I need and reminds me to think outside the box.
Thank you :D
