Notepads

Postby imac » Sun Aug 10, 2008 2:49 pm

Hi
I have searched the 'net to find a Notepad program just like the Windows one, that is, I can copy and paste into or from it. Those I found do allow that at times.
e.g., Gedit does not allow that at some times.
when I read something usefull I copy the text and put it into Notepad in windows and keep for future reference, I cant really do that in Linux, at least with the notepads I have found.

Any ideas please.

I'm off to donate. I heard that, "it's about time" somebody out there shouted :) :lol:

"Leafpad is a simple GTK+ based text editor, the user interface is
similar to Notepad. It aims to be lighter than GEdit & KWrite,
and to be as useful as them."

You can find it with synaptic, or type in Root Terminal:
Code: Select all
apt-get install leafpad


It can then be found in Applications / Accessories / Leafpad .

I got Crossover Standard from codeweavers, a super addon.

I installed Office 2000 no problem.
I was setting up a couple of programs today and I found, in the Office install folder the Microsoft
Notepad program, it works. To use it I just have to right click on it.

Leafpad is also good, but when I open a file I made from it it opens in Gedit, to get round that I just right click on it and select "Open with Leafpad".

Another alternative would be "mousepad". An enhanced leafpad with printing support. I see it available in synaptic.

Thanks :) Both Mousepad and Leafpad have translated to Finnish, so I can use them with my native language :)
