    What is gedit?

    I'm using "Fedora Core 5 Linux Installation Notesby Stanton Finley, revised July 26th, 2006" to set up my puter.
    The instructions tell me to type in the word gegit in several places and my puter responce is command not found. What did I miss?

    [maparus@localhost ~]$ su -
    Password:
    [root@localhost ~]# gedit /etc/profile.d/java.sh
    -bash: gedit: command not found
    [root@localhost ~]#

    Many thanks maparus

    Gedit is a text editor. You could use any text editor you choose to edit these files. If you don't have gedit do a "yum -y install gedit" as root to get it.

    Hello:
    Try as logged in as root [su- password] yum -y install gedit
    Not sure why you are getting the error, unless it is not installed?

    It's a gui text editor.
    Code:
    [richard@localhost ~]$ which gedit
    /usr/bin/gedit
    [richard@localhost ~]$ rpm -q -f /usr/bin/gedit
    gedit-2.14.3-1
