Question Doesn't Debian Wheezy has a graphical text editor for c++ ?


I can't find any preinstalled grapphical text editor at all in debian wheezy.

I want one like Kedit i had in kubuntu.

I installed vim and vim-gtk for the graphic interface along the c extension highlight exuberant-ctags., but where do i find it to run its graphical version? I manage to execute the graphical vim only though console vim -f file.cpp

and how do i activate c++ highlighting?

From Wiki
Quote:
KEdit was formerly a simple text editor for KDE, by Bernd Johannes Wübben.[2] It has been discontinued in KDE 4, and has been superseded by Kate and KWrite.
Kate and Kwrite are the two programs you should look into.

Unhappy Gvim at Debian unsuportable! Just want a simple advanced text editor like Kedit

I ve installed Gvim at debian but its really unsuportable!

No easy copy paste keystrokes not even auto tabing!

Is there a simple advanced text editor like Kedit in debian?

With none of this nervousing console legacy at all

To be honest, i don't use editors very much and when i do, it's only quick stuff, so i tend to just use nano or vi. When i do desire to use a graphical editor, and i had both installed; i think i preferred kwrite, but i get the two mixed up, and i never explored there feature set so take that for what it's worth. Good luck, try both and see which one you like best.

kwrite is just a plain editor. kate does all kinds of stuff.

Features | Kate | Get an Edge in Editing - http://kate-editor.org/about-kate/

If you prefer vi/m you might want to install cream.

Since Debian defaults to Gnome, that a look at Gedit.

It opens in plain text mode, but, if you go to View-->Highlight Mode-->Sources, you will find a number of choices for programming language markup, including C, C#, and C++.

The thing about vim (and gvim, which is just a gui shell for vim) is that it's not a traditional, notepad-style text editor. It's much more than that.

You certainly can't say it doesn't have keystrokes at least, because that's the whole point of it--everything can be done through the keyboard only! And it not only does it have copy/paste, it has a whole slew of registers you can use to store text in. And yes, it has auto-tabbing and much, much, much more.

It's true that the learning curve is so steep as to feel like you'll never understand it, but when you do overcome it, you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Start by reading this blog essay for inspiration.
http://www.rudism.com/s/vimcreep

Then read this for a detailed tutorial on how to get started.
http://www.swaroopch.org/notes/Vim_en:Table_of_Contents

You should also be able to run "vimtutor", and vim will open up with a built-in tutorial you can work through.

Finally, this wiki has hundreds of tips of all kinds on how to configure and use it:http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Vim_Tips_Wiki


So please don't give up on vim yet. Take the time to really learn it. You won't be sorry!
