    When I run this: sudo apt-get install notepadqq

    Show me this: E: Unable to locate package notepadqq

    CTRL+Space shortcut is not working on my ubuntu 14.10.
    Maybe because I’m already using it for another program, but there’s no way to set it!

    Without build-in FTP client it’s only another PHP/HTML editor (gPHPEdit is much better). So, I have to use Wine to run Notepad++ :(

    Is this project dead? Will you be supporting packages beyond ‘precise’?

    I’ve added the ppa successfully with sudo add-apt-repository ppa:notepadqq-team/notepadqq, but then when I click on the link you posted above to install it – Ubuntu Software Center opens and I get this:

    Not found
    There isn’t a software package called “notepadqq” in your current software sources.

    Any chance of getting this into Ubuntu Software Center?:

    Just curious: is it difficult to support Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) LTS? It is a long-term support release and I suspect that a text editor doesn’t need the latest and greatest system in order to edit text.

      Nope, it’s not difficult. But it requires time ;-)
      So, given that I miss time for development too, I try to limit my tests to the latest Ubuntu version.
      But you’re right, it should run on old LTS releases without any problem!

      Great! The license is GPLv3… I’m going to write it somewhere here on the website too.

    Can i install notepadqq also on debian squeeze ?

    Can i add the same repository of natty ?

      Hi, Notepadqq is still in a pre-relase status, so it’s not ready for production purposes.
      Anyway, you can convert the DEB package into a RPM package using the “Alien” software.
