I believe this affects multiple things in ranger, but off the top of my head it's mainly the `:bulkrename` option, which is supposed to open the selected files in vidir using your specified editor so that you can rename file(s) with the full features of your favorite editor. It is intended for renaming files in bulk just like it sounds, but I also find it's often easier to use than the normal rename command because you don't have to type the current name, and it's easy to do things like change capitalization of a selection in vim.
This is a long-standing issue, but I was ignoring it for some reason. I guess I use ranger more on remote machines running different distros.
steps to reproduce:
- install ranger
- launch ranger
- type :bulkrename, that is start by hitting the colon key and then continue typing the name of the command
I think it's likely due to locations of certain files being different on guix. Hopefully someone can figure out a fix without too much trouble. If you have access to another distro to see how it works normally, that might help as well. You may need to install optional dependencies for this feature to work. Likely just vidir or a package that it's a part of. For me I believe I got vidir from the `moreutils` package.
