I'm trying out Ubuntu for the first time so I'm a very new but I've done a bit of searching and I want to get something pretty similar to Notepad++
Gedit so far seems to be the pretty similar except I like a feature in N++ where I can add more function names to a list so it knows to colour them a certain way. For example in my prepared statements (PHP) I use things such as
execute but Gedit doesn't recognize these and just leaves them white.
I'm sure there must be a file somewhere which contains a list of all known function names and I'd imagine you can edit it to add more, but I have no idea on where to start looking? I can't find a plugin for it either so I guess this is the only way.
Either that or I install Wine and use that to run N++ but a tutorial I found for that tells me to start typing in all sorts of things to install it and I have no idea where I being typing them ha. Plus it kinda defeats the point of me having Ubuntu if I'm just gonna revert to a Windows emulator all the time :P
