Please forgive me if I am not posting this is the correct forum. I am extremely new at this, so please bare with me as I try to explain my problem. At work we are using Cisco Voip phones and when setting them up we first create a config file in vi editor. I first use a program called putty.
I am currently using linux distribution 12.04LTS, I'm using gedit as my editor to learn python, how do I remove old programming projects from this editor? I tried using rm file command in the terminal window and they are removed but remain saved in the editor. If there are any flaws in my question, please let me know. Does a command exist I don't know about?
When I am using ipython or ipython3, I can use the %edit command to open up an editor to write my python scripts in. My problem is that the default editor is vim and I really do not get how to use that editor. What I would like to do is to change the editor to either nano or gedit.
