View Full Version : Notepad++

March 10th, 2009, 03:12 AM
I've tried asking on the main Notepad++ forums but they seem very slow in responding so I thought I'd probe the mind of the extensive user base here.

How do you get Call Tips (i.e. Function Parameter hints on input) working in Notepad++? I'm trying to get it working specifically for programming in C but they just don't come up when I'm entering the functions.

Also, Auto-indent in version 5.2 seems to be non-existant for some reason; has anyone else encountered this?

I don't know if you'll get a reply to that question here as notepad++ is a windows only tool.

That being said have you tried e-mailing their mailing list or dropping into whatever IRC channel the notepad++ devs like to hang out in? That might give you a better shot of getting your question answered.

Easier than expected on stock Jaunty 9.04

System > Administration >Synaptic Package Manager
Supply password and Quick Search for "WINE" (no quotes)
Mark WINE for installation and Apply
(let the package manager install the dependencies it needs)
Download Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/download.php) (Choose the .zip file once you get to SourceForge)
Extract the zip file
Create a custom application launcher with a custom command of:
wine <path-to-notepad++.exe>

For instance, I downloaded the npp5.3.1.bin.zip file and it unzipped to the npp5.3.1.bin folder. My custom application launcher command is:
wine /home/sean/Downloads/npp5.3.1.bin/ansi/notepad++.exe
