    Question Compile Notepad ++ under ubuntu?

    Hello,
    Is it possible to compile Notepad++ (my favorite text-editor)
    under ubuntu?

    I know i can run it in wine, but i would like to run it outside wine.

    The source code can you download over here:
    http://download.tuxfamily.org/notepa...p.5.8.7.src.7z

    Some one help me?

    No, you need visual studio for that.

    Luckely there are many better alternatives for Linux, or cross-platform.

    I prefer Geany.

    But is it possible with GCC?

    No, it is very much Window-native..

    yep, i'm afraid that NPP is windows only on a far deeper level than compilation. you might be able to get it to compile via mono i suppose, but it would never run on the linux kernel.

    I tend to use Geany on ubuntu. has many of the same features I value in n++
    Things are rarely just crazy enough to work, but they're frequently just crazy enough to fail hilariously.

    Hmm, thanks for your help


    I will try Geany, it looks the same as gPHPedit, but it didn't like gPHPedit.

    It's C++. Nothing to do with Mono.

    Npp's major runtime dependency is MS VC++. that means MSVCRT.dll, which mono implements.

    thanks for playing, but bonus points for the vorlon proverb.

    Hi,

    geany is a very good replace for Notepad++
    has almost the same functions as Notepad++ (execpt ftp plugin)

    No, Mono doesn't implement the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime DLL. There's no point, since apps which use it (via C++/CLI) are explicitly not cross-platform other than a tiny never-used subset. Mono has no C++ compiler of any description. At best, as mentioned on the link you posted, there is some embryonic work on making GCC emit CIL. But this is, of course, no use when an app is using Win32 headers and calls in the first place, rather than .NET ones.

    So... nope. Sorry.
