View Full Version : [ubuntu] Notepad Equivalent?

March 8th, 2012, 05:25 PM
Is there something like notepad or gedit (not LibreOffice Writer) installed out of the box in Ubuntu 11.10? If so, where is it and how can it be run? If not, what should I do to get one? Thank you.

gEdit comes pre-installed.

isn't gedit installed? it might be called 'text editor' or some such thing. probably in your accessories area or whatever unity calls it

type "gedit" on the terminal, and it will show up.
Else, if you really, really want notepad in particular, it is installed by default when you install wine.

You can also click the Dash button and start typing gedit and it will show up for you to click on.

I went to "Dash home" and typed "gedit" (without quotes). It showed up in the dash. Thanks.
