Re: [libvirt-users] Permanently change default virsh editor

Normally, you can set environment variables in .bashrc or .bash_profile and if I am not mistaken in /etc, there is alos a bashrc file that is system-wide, maybehave a look at it.

After changing one of those file execute the following command to update your current console configuration

source <path/to/file>


source ~/.bashrc

This is distribution dependent. For instance, I'm unaware of any
system-wide approach in Fedora (except for what Cole suggested, which
will work everywhere). But for instance in gentoo you can:

# eselect editor set vi
