Hi John.

Do you really prefer gedit, or mousepad?

Perhaps one more thing to check: if the commands in the .wxremindrc
(such as -f + %(n)s and so on) were written for another editor, perhaps
they are not the right commands to give for mousepad or gedit. The man
pages for gedit and for mousepad should tell you what commands ought to
be used to get them to behave as desired.
