Linux Beginners Walpaper This has to be the coolest background for beginning Linux users. What a great idea. I could probably use one of these. Especially for emacs but thats because I’m church of Vi baby.

Daily vim, Easier Command Line Editing Hack

Filed under: Quick Linux Tutorials — TheLinuxBlog.com at 2:06 pm on Tuesday, July 7, 2009

I’m a fan of the Daily Vim. While reading, I came across the old long command line edit: http://dailyvim.blogspot.com/2009/06/easier-command-line-editing.html

Since I don’t have emacs installed (fire away) after Pressing CTRL-x CTRL-e to edit the command, this is what I got:

[owen@LinuxBlog ~]$
bash: /usr/bin/emacs: No such file or directory

There is a simple fix for this:

sudo ln -s vim /usr/bin/emacs

I’m sure there is a correct way to do this, but this is what I did and it has worked well for me so far.
