Notepadqq is just like Notepad++ but for Linux rather than Windows.
Installing notepadqq on Debian 8 wasn’t as simple as I had expected as the PPA method threw-up a 404 error when I ran apt-get update. As a result, I opted for a download, compile and install method as outlined below.
First, download and install pre-reqs:
sudo apt-get install qt5-default libqt5webkit5 libqt5webkit5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libqt5svg5 libqt5svg5-dev git
Next, download notepadqq source itself:
git clone https://github.com/notepadqq/notepadqq.git
Finally, compile and install to /usr/local/lib/notepadqq:
cd notepadqq ./configure make sudo make install
