I found examples for Windows but I do not find for Ubuntu.


How to use Notepadqq for edit git commit messages in Ubuntu?

  • Have you tried using the git config command? What was the result? – Melebius May 9 '17 at 12:28

Do one of the following (not necessarily both):

  • Set core.editor : git config --global core.editor "notepadqq"
  • Set the GIT_EDITOR environment variable: export GIT_EDITOR=notepadqq
  • export applies to the current shell session only. – Melebius May 9 '17 at 13:08
  • I tried to do it as in the first version. But it shows me message "Aborting commit due to empty commit message." When I try to do as described here stackoverflow.com/questions/9725160/… git config --global core.editor "Notepad++ -w" - it doesn't work. – makbuk May 14 '17 at 13:28
