Nano Arduino Yun

Yes, I prefer nano over vi.

If you try to use nano on your Arduino Yún you might get the following error:

Error opening terminal: xterm-256color.

To get rid of that error, type this command into terminal:

$ TERM=xterm-color

This change would only last for the current terminal session. Now, to make this changes persist

$ echo "TERM=xterm-color" >> .bash_profile

As a bonus, if you want you can set nano as your default editor:

$ echo "EDITOR=nano" >> .bash_profile

NOTE I always seem to forget the difference between .bashrc and .bash_profile.

In bash, .bashrc is only read by a shell that is both interactive and non-login
