G'day emmauspaul,

As gedcom files are text files, there are several options:

1) use ROX to go to the gedcom you wish to edit and simply right-click the mouse and choose "Open As Text" from the menu that pops up
2) or after the right-click menu opens, choose "Set Run Action" and drag the desktop/pinboard "write" icon to the middle of the dialog box so when you next left-click the gedcom, it opens with the default word-processor
3) or drag the desktop "edit" icon into the "Set Run Action" box so the gedcom opens with the default text editor
4) or if you have Libre Office, and a pinboard/desk-top icon for its writer, drag that to the "Set Run Action" box.

If you have a Windows program that you have used to edit your .ged files and would prefer to keep using it, get green-dome's latest wine pet (or sfs if you're using a Frugal Pup), get that running then see if your Windows ged-editor program will run under wine by clicking its .exe file.

I have RootsMagic, PAF and Legacy running under Puppy using wine this way. There is also a linux-only genealogy program Gramps for which there is a pet (search the Forum). These can all create and import gedcoms I believe.
