#StackBounty: #vim #flatpak #octave GNU Octave: `sh: vim: command not found`

Bounty: 50

I am running GNU Octave from flatpak and I have an issue with the edit command. In Octave’s CLI when I run

edit file.m

I got the following issue:

sh: vim: command not found

I have the following set in my octaverc configuration file (from GNU Octave Wiki: vim):

EDITOR('vim > /dev/tty 2>&1 < /dev/tty %s')

vim is installed on my system. I don’t have any error if I replace vim by nano in the previous command.

I wonder if the problem isn’t that I’m using flatpak.

Get this bounty!!!
