Believe it or not, this is my first topic created.
I thought I would pass along a small piece of feedback that popped into my head and see what you guys think. I feel like it could help improve Garuda in a (very) small way.
vi by default, which is a package not included with Garuda. To run
visudo a Garuda user needs to either download
vi, or run
sudo EDITOR=/usr/bin/micro visudo to get it open and then add
Defaults editor=/usr/bin/micro into the file somewhere if they don't want to have to remember that whole line every time.
I don't intent to imply this is a great hardship, but since
micro is the default editor it seems logical that
visudo would open with
micro by default. A user who does not prefer
micro could make their own adjustments, which they will already be doing for the rest of the editor defaults.
My suggestion would be to ship Garuda with
Defaults editor=/usr/bin/micro as an uncommented line in the
visudo file, or put the equivalent line in
/etc/environment or whatever is determined to be the most reasonable way to accomplish this.
In the same vein,
pacdiff also defaults to
vi on a stock Garuda install, and requires either downloading
vi or running as
sudo DIFFPROG=micro pacdiff. It would be nice if you could just...run it!
I don't believe these are incredibly critical changes to make, but I do think they are nice-to-haves that are acheivable--perhaps even easy. What do you guys think?
