I recently received an error telling me that there was a problem on line 52. I am trying to learn what the best method is for finding lines instead of actually counting them.
In Windows, I often used Notepad++ which displayed the lines directly to the left, so users could easily scroll to the specific line they were looking for -- However I do not see this option in Linux.
Maybe a certain application is needed?
UPDATE: I currently can not open software-store and the only text editor I have is the default
gedit. So please restrict your answers to solutions that don't involve me installing software.
**NOTE: ** I am not looking to find a 'String' of some sort. I am looking to quickly find the line NUMBER that the string appears on.
