[Vivado 2015.2] Can't change text editor

I'm trying to change the text editor and it isn't working.

 

I tried Sigasi and Notepad++ and when I try to open a .vhd file nothing happens.

 

The command that I paste in Tools -> Options -> General -> Text Editor -> Custom Editor is correct since when incorrect the error "Unable to launch external text editor .... Please verify that the editor is installed on your system, specified in your PATH and..."

 

So, how can I solve this? I would really like a different text editor in Vivado.

 

Edit: I'm on Linux.

Yes, I followed the instructions on that exact link.

 

Like I said, it doesn't give an error but it also doens't open the file in the choosen text editor.
