I did not know that this was the one, but now I tested it from a
terminal window and sure enough it pops up the GUI window that is the
same as from Applications/Accessories/Text Editor

Which is what I need to get into the setup instructions of course!
This solves the problem since in terminal one would do:

su -
gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf

Then the editor will come up and the next thing to do is to switch off
word wrap in preferences and one is ready to go.

Thanks, I will put this into the docs I will prepare.
