Hi,

As an alternative to dream weaver you could run Quanta Plus.

Hope this helps.

Do you use Dreamweaver as a IDE or as a WYSIWYG editor? If you use it as a IDE there are tons of better alternatives like Aptana, Bluefish, Geany and even Gedit.

For WYSIWYG, there's Amaya (from W3C), Kompozer and Quanta. I can't tell if they are good, because I don't use them (XHTML+CSS is more powerful, flexible and fast for me). There's nothing wrong running Qt/KDE applications on Gnome. They will look ugly, but they work.

For Flash, I don't know any alternative to create swf files, but there are better and more flexible alternatives to swf, like those JavaScript animation frameworks (jQuery and scriptaculous are easy).

+1 for geany. As for dreamweaver, check WineHQ AppDB... some versions supposedly run great, others don't. If nothing else, install VirtualBox & run DW from Winblows in a VB.

There isn't a alternative to Flash unfortunately. I would suggest running it VirtualBox. Some people run it in WINE and done fine. I have tried in WINE and had problems.

Here is the link for Dreamweaver in the WineHQ app db http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=183

and Flash http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=23

You can use flex for developing Flash on Linux. Don't bother with dreamwever or WYSIWYG editors, they output awful HTML/CSS, and it is *slightly* expensive if you are only using it as a text editor;).

For Web development, I use Bluefish mostly. I've installed Dreamweaver MX via WINE and got it to work pretty well. Someone mentioned Virtual Box in a previous thread. That sounds like a good idea, too. I might give that a try.

You can run Qt programs (for KDE) on Gnome also, you don't specifically need a Gnome program. Just try it out.
