I have installed Notepad++ v5.9.3 and Wine v1.3.32

All good except last character of filename (with separate extension) or filename/extension is truncated in the Explorer panel..

I have un-installed and re-installed Wine, as per a similar question but no good.

I am a newbie to Ubuntu and need assistance to fix this, please ...alanb

Wine often suffers from these and other problems. The best solution is to switch to an editor that runs in Linux, such as gedit or vim/gvim. There probably isn't an easy way to make Notepad++ work better, short of modifying either Notepad++ or Wine.

Thanks for the advice. I've actually switched to gedit + plugins and am very happy with it. – alanb Dec 6 '11 at 21:24
