Just a program i can code in like notepad++ for linux?
Thinking of installing linux and this is what i need most, if they don't have a program like notepad++ then i will not install it.
If anyone understands the importance of a good text editor, it's a Linux user stuck on Windows. Sure, Microsoft supplies Notepad and Wordpad, but neither really feels like the powerful sort of text editor a Linux user expects. Enter Notepad++.
Notepad++ has a great feature where I can edit a file on a remote PC using SFTP. Notepad++ is only supported on the Windows platform. I need to use Ubuntu and edit files on a remote PC which has SSH and SFTP support. Is there a GUI based editor for Linux which does something similar to Notepad++. Right now I SSH in and use vi.
A few facts: I use Wine. Wine ships its own version of Notepad. For some files, this copy of Notepad has somehow become associated. There is no possibility of me ever actually wanting to open anything in Notepad.
I figure I could try and find out what Notepad is associated with and re-associate that with my editor of choice but that seems deeply tedious.
