Problem with editing (can't edit in the terminal's app)

I just downloaded the app. Trying to use it in my terminal in my Ubuntu machine.
the problem is that I can’t edit, it throws an error:

edit: Error opening note in editor: spawnSync neovim ENOENT

As you can see I’m just trying to edit with my neovim editor.
Is someone familiar with the problem?

Try to use the absolute path.

Hi man,
Thanks for responding!
How exactly do i set an absolute path? and where?

check on the terminal, not in Joplin with the following command:

which neovim

You will get the absolute path. Then in Joplin terminal app, you type:

:config editor <absolute_path_here>

e.g. on my system:

$ which vim

:config edit /usr/bin/vim

Thank you, it worked! <3

You are welcome.
