Hi there. There are few things that i miss about XP since switching to Fedora, but Notepad++ happens to be one of them.
What is the chance of there ever being a "real" Linux Notepad++ (vs the "WinE" emulation of N++ on Windows -- which by the way i, as far as i've seen, works fine... but ya never know when a WinE app is going to crash)
Notepad++ is quickly becoming my favorite editor for code - and the best code editor I have seen on Windows or Linux. Kate is too bloated, VIM is too cryptic, Gedit too basic, etc. Please please port NP++?! I would love to have it integrate into the Linux DE instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.
I'm interested in this too. I recently switched my laptop over to FC6, and gedit is close, but I just miss N++
For Linux I'd suggest using Kate, it's bundled with KDE and has all the same features of Notepad++ plus some extras.
Before running it in WINE, I'd suggest trying SciTE, which is an editor based on scintilla, the same core as Notepad++. You will probably find it very similar to Notepad++, but with less features.
Ive also switched awhile ago, I use gEdit now but I do miss Notepad++ as well, SciTE does look pretty awesome, Ill use that until Notepad++ is ported. *wink* and *HINT HINT* Hehe.
The list of editors for linux is endless, I simply can't imagine people missing some Notepad++ feature in one of these editors.
It's not features that are missing, but rather the look and feel of Notepad ++. Not sure if anyone realizes it, but the look and feel of Notepad ++ rocks hard core.
BTW, I am running it in Wine, and it appears to work fine.
NP++ runs nicely so far under wine. On Ubuntu, I followed the instructions for installing wine via apt-get. I downloaded the installer and ran it, wine npp.4.0.1.Installer.exe. Then went into $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Prog*/Note*, and ran wine notepad++.exe, and woohoo it ran
