with version 1.3.3 of gnotepad+
from the file menu, pick "open"
in the file-picker, naturally, dotfiles such as
.bash_profile .bashrc or .fvwm2rc do not appear in the
directory listing. However, if you type the name of a
dotfile in the text-entry box at the bottom of the
file-picker, you should still be able to open the dotfile
The only way I can open a dotfile in gnotepad+ is if I
start it from the command-line:
james@localhost# gnp .fvwm2rc &
when I do it from the command-line, it opens the
dotfile just fine. ... but having to open an xterm
every time I want to edit a dotfile can be quite
inconvenient. I would like to be able to just open the
dotfile right into an existing instance of gnotepad+
