Installing Notepad++ in Ubuntu 12.04

Notepad++ is an excellent open source editor. But it is not officially supported for Ubuntu. But we can install it in via Wine. ( Wine is a windows package for Ubuntu)

Steps

1. If you doesn’t have Wine installed, install it from Dashboard or terminal using sudo apt-get install wine

2. Go to Notepad++ website and download windows installer ( Direct Link here )

Click on v6.3 installer

Choose Open with Wine Windows Program

Choose language.

Install. create short cut on Desktop

( Note:- I have modified the GUI property using Setting –> Style Configurator –> Default Style )

Alternatively I have a youtube video too

Notepad++ is arguably best free editor in Windows and now you can use it in Ubuntu too.
