Friends, I wanted to use Qute on my Ubuntu 12.04. There are a couple of problems:

  1. It relies on a dead project.
  2. One has to compile the files there.

The question now is: is it worth the pain to install this thingy?

If the answer to the previous question is no, then what is an alternative?

For one, I was suggested that retext might be a good option, if I wanted Markdown. But, the TeX support in retext does not sound great.

Please help me.
