JEdit is a simple and cool looking editor designed using Java . The interface is pretty much the same in both Windows and Ubuntu. I would consider it as an alternative for kate in Windows .
To install JEdit in Windows , just download this executable.( 2.6MB)
Installing it Ubuntu is equally simpler .
You can download the .deb package here . (3.4 MB )
If you are a geek ,who prefers to install it thru’ command line, then follow the steps below :
- Append these two lines to sources.list file found in /etc/apt/
- Run the following line in Terminal
sudo apt-get install update
- Now run the following line to install JEdit
sudo apt-get install jedit
As an alternative to all the above said packages , you are also provided with a platform independent JEdit installer .Its in .jar format.
You can get it here.
