How to switch the editor in mc (midnight commander) from mcedit to nano?

if I disable it “use internal edit”
i don’t know what is basic, but I can’t use it

Try adding these two lines to .bashrc, then log out and back in:

EDITOR=nano
export EDITOR

This suggestion is likely correct, but just FYI it’s 2019, even /bin/sh will let you one-line that now. :laughing:

export EDITOR=nano
