comment How to fix frequent crashes of openshot?
i experienced the same problem, and after trying to fix or at least mitigate it, and being unable to, i ended up leaving OpenShot and using something else instead :( shame :(

comment `/etc/sudoers` — specify `env_keep` for one command only?
@Arrowmaster -- thanks, that seems like a better approach than the one I was messing around with. Since I'm already wrapping sudo with a function of my own, I've simply added a if [ "$1" == "$EDITOR" ]; then block and am now calling sudoedit instead :)

hmm - perhaps I spoke to soon. Now that I try this, I can't actually get it to work. Can I trouble you to take a look at my revision?

brilliant, thank you. I couldn't find a proper example of that syntax. Now that you spell it out for me, I can see how I should have worked that out from the man page, and I feel slightly foolish. No doubt this answer will help others, too, though.
