I want everything that has to do with text to be edited within console
vim with tabs.
My problem is that I can't open files in console
vim from GUI, I can only open them in
Does anyone know how I can do such a thing?
For example my most frequent issue is with a game called
Second Life. In this game you can write scripts and it gives you the option to edit your scripts in External editors.
I want my external editor to be console
vim. These are the instructions from the game:
ExternalEditor: Path to program used to edit LSL scripts and XUI files, e.g.: /usr/bin/gedit --new-window "%s". so when I put:
"/usr/bin/X11/gvim" "%s" it works for gvim, but it opens a new one each time I edit a new script AND this doesn't work at all for console
vim. I tried
vim server, but it was a failure.
If someone knows how to do what I want, please share.
Thanks in advance.
