How to Install Notepad++ Editor on Ubuntu
However Notepad++ does not have official support for Linux (and Ubuntu).
And there is problem with copy-pasting from Notepad++ to Terminal. But workaround is very simple. To past from Notepad++ to Terminal, Ctl+Shift+V shortcut can be used instead of Ctl+V and instead of Shift+Insert.
Moved back from Linux to Windows ~12 months ago, hope that memory
serves. There could be multiple issues.
If you are talking about problems of copy-pasting between Notepad++
and terminal (or other Linux app) then you are likely facing the
problem of Linux PRIMARY and SECONDARY paste buffers. Go read about
it. Notepad++ over wine is copying into SECONDARY buffer and to paste
into terminal you need special shortcut: ctrl-shift-v. For the other
way around copy with ctrl-ins from terminal and paste with ctrl-v into
From your description, I assume you are copy-pasting from Notepad++
into Notepad++. Don’t remember an issue like you described. I could
guess that ctrl-ins and shift-ins are global shortcuts in the Linux
system. This may lead into race where 2 entities, Notepad++ and
“Linux”, manipulate the clipboard (or paste buffers) which leads to
unpredictable results. Using ctrl-c and ctrl-v should workaround THAT
issue since they are far less global. If that is indeed the problem
then disabling global effects of ctrl-ins shift-ins will be VERY
difficult. These shortcuts are embedded deep into the system.
There are also helper applications that should do automatic
synchronization between PRIMARY and SECONDARY buffers to help. I
didn’t install any of them myself. But as many kinds of “help” they
may leave you off worse than you started.
Ubuntu, copy paste, works half the time
I tested this on Ubuntu 20.04.
