    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!

    I’ve made a PKGBUILD of this package for arch linux:

    If you have any thoughts or objections to this, you can contact me through my info on that site. :)

    Oh, and what license, if any, is this distributed under?

    i need notepadqq version for OPENSUSE 11.4 ???

    • danieleds says:

      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.
