Can anyone help me to get Quanta plus it does not come with Mint?

I have searched for there home site but the website appears not to work anymore.

I have only found that a website duckduck leads the direction to Quanta's which does not work.

Google pulls up a webpage and a Wikipedia link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quanta_Plus
http://quanta.sourceforge.net/release2.php

This software is old, and hasn't been updated in quite a while. The package became kwebdev, and you can find it on Sourceforge too:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/kwebdev/

...and it's probably in your repositories.

I think that Quanta is dead, or, at the least, in a coma.

What there is, is here: http://quanta.sourceforge.net/release2.php

If I recall correctly, it was a fork of NVu, also dead: http://net2.com/nvu/

Kompozer is quite nice, but also hasn't been updated in quite a while. I do like the multi-tab view, but the "view source" is lame; if you use Kompozer, I would suggest using it in conjunction with a text editor--you can make changes in the text editor, refresh Kompozer, and use the two quite nicely togethere.

I have downloaded the Komposer as a .gz file. I am used to .rpm. Can you help in walking through making it run and put the ikon to the desktop.

Ok, again:
  • Quanta plus became kwebdev
  • You can install kwebdev via your online repositories (run software manager from the menu and install it)
  • You can install kompozer via your online repositories (run software manager from the menu and install it)
Two options (among others you've been given), very easy. Also, if you just bothered to uncompress that .gz file, kompozer is already ready to run. You can right-click on the .gz file and you'll see an option to uncompress it. You can type in "tar xvfz <filename>" to uncompress it. And putting "how to create a desktop icon in linux mint" into Google pulls up lots:
