#3292 closed enhancement (wontfix)

have 'nano' installed by default

Reported by: HoboPrimate Owned by: pbrobinson

Severity: Minor Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description (last modified by HoboPrimate)

vi or ed aren't really user-friendly for kids (or adults!).
Also, many tutorials and other documentation on the web (about linux stuff) mentions nano when there is a need to edit a file in a terminal.

It is not a default installed package in Fedora, but it has been in Ubuntu for a while now.

Write is the standard editor in SoaS. Specific text based editors are a matter of personal choice and are easily installed using yum

Well, It would be used as a terminal level editor, something Write can't do. I just wanted kids to have an easier tool to hack their system and Sugar itself (for example, uncommenting the extra views for Home).
