Thanks Jay!
Sorry for the confusion.
I have now tried to configure 'editor' by either writing and editor script
in my ~/bin directory (which is in my $PATH) or by running
update-alternatives to make a system wide change. I tried nano (the
default, terminal oriented) and emacs (x-windows oriented) and got the
same
    Error while spawning editor: The process failed to start.
:(
Is there a way to find out why?
Could this be related to my previous problem (failure to print)?
Thanks and regards,
Luis
