Hi, new to Linux Lite, not new to linux; I'm trying it out as a replacement for my Slackware stuff.
Would love to have xed as text editor, but can't get it installed (tried several things, including the install instructions from the Linux Mint page (which is kind of strange as Lite is also based on Ubuntu..)).

Any tips on how to add the right PPA or another solution?

Thx!

Hi,


This might work.

Thanks for your response; that does not work unfortunately (similar procedure as mentioned at Mint page).
Will now put my laptop to Solus linux to try that one out and se how it goes there.

Do you get an error while installing or what is the problem?

@Aernoudt ,
If you're looking for another text editor besides the default one on LL 5.0, there are many other options.  Consider installing gedit.  It is very, very similar to Xed.  You can install it via Install/Remove Software, or you can paste the following into a terminal and install it that way.


Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gedit

You can see what it looks like here:

Use the .deb file to install it

Download
Code: [Select]
wget http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/backport/x/xed/xed_2.4.2+tricia_amd64.debthen install with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install ./xed_2.4.2+tricia_amd64.deb
Note that for the command above to work, xed's .deb pkg must be in your home dir, otherwise cd into the one you downloaded it, run the command from there and tha's it, xed should install with no problem.

Hope this helps! :)
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
