Hello! I would like to use the external text editor. But when I click the button, "Stop" appears, but no editor opens. Somehow I expect this to happen.
Now I've read a lot about it here in the forum and tried to somehow save my desired editor in the settings. But no matter what I write in the two lines (path, arguments), it doesn't work. If I click on the button, nothing happens, not even "Stop" appears.
Maybe someone has an idea what I can do there, or what I should write in the two lines or how I can get Joplin to at least open the standard editor.
Many thanks for your response.
I've already tried that.
According to the terminal query , the program is in / usr / bin / Zettlr
But if I browse there via Tools / General, Zettlr is not displayed and no other program (xep or Typora) that is stored there. When I browse there with Nemo, the programs are displayed.
And when I put the path in the command line, it doesn't work either.
That is strange. Here I'm using typora, and have entered the path where I've installed it, in my case /home/john/bin/Typora/Typora and it works as expected. So don't know what's going on, hope you get it sorted.
One amendment for completeness, if others have a similar issue and if you want to spawn non-flatpak apps from a flatpak-installed Joplin, such as Typora (which in turn isn't using flatpak), you can use this configuration instead:
/ bin / flatpak-spawn
--host / usr / bin / typora
