Re: [orca-list] editing remote files

Unless your meaning another application called sftp, there isn't any issue with sftp and Orca as its command line based.

Well, I have a lot of options now but I figure it never hurts to have one more. So I am trying gftp but I cannot get it working. I upgraded my machine to debian squeeze and installed orcaa from source version 2.27.92. When I run gftp, I can tab around for a bit but then it always seizes up. Pressing tab does nothing. I saw in the archives that a couple of years ago, somone else reported this same problem. Does sftp really work with orca?

Try gFTP you will have to open the options and choose gedit as the viewer and editor. Then you can upload, download and edit files etc using Orca and gedit.

I do a lot of systems administration and that involves editing config files remotely. I would like to use a GUI editor, not vi. What's the best way to accomplish that? On windows I map a share via sftp and edit files in a text
editor  called TextPad. That is very nice but I need to do the equivalent
thing in linux.
