Editor for Knoppix


I am quite new to Linux. My background is in DOS. I am running Knoppix from a CD on my system. How do I open an editor say Kwrite from the shell prompt so that I can type in C code that I can compile and run?

You can start kwrite by typing kwrite at the command prompt, assuming that kwrite is present on the knoppix CD.

knoppix editors

kwrite is not there. How can I know the different types of editors that can be used with Knoppix? For example, can I do a dir of the cd and look for a particular editor?

You can use vi or nano. Those are most commonly used editors and most distros ship them.

You can use the find command or the which command to look for programs. For example:

find / -iname "*vim*"

which vim

Don't have a current knoppix CD to hand, but:
  • If its a DVD (not a CD) I'd be surprised if kwrite weren't there; for the CD, space is rather constricted and maybe kwrite is a victim of that
  • Beware of the difference between Kwrite and kwrite; Unix generally does not forgive case errors as DOS does; you should need kwrite
  • Last time I looked at knoppix, it had locate set up (thoughtful bloke, Klaus Knopper), so 'locate kwrite' (or other editor name) should work and be faster than using find
  • If you find that an editor that you want to try is in, say, '/usr/sbin/this_editor' typing '/usr/sbin/this_editor' should start it, even if its not in the path

I know its a GUI editor (but its quite nice, really), but you might also want to check out kate, which should be in the menu system.

If you are running it from cd, then you must be running it in graphical mode? If so, surely you can just have a look at the appliations menu to see what is available?

I am fairly sure that Knoppix comes with Nano and Vi. Not sure about Graphical Editors but Knoppix does indeed boot into GUI. I have used it every now and then at work.

Download DVD

To use BitTorrent, Download it, and visit the Knoppix BitTorrent Tracker, and click the "DL" link next to the image you want to download ( -EN or -DE ). Save that file, then run btdownloadgui KNOPPIX-[date].torrent. Leave the program running when your download has finished, as you'll be uploading it for other people.

I tried to download the DVD but I did not quite follow the instructions.
where I am I suppose to run this command from , is it the C:\ prompt? btdownloadgui KNOPPIX-[date].torrent.

i tried it but it did not work.

Do you have a BitTorrent downloading application? If you're in windows something like utorrent? You should be able to download the .torrent file and double click it to open it in your default app if you have one already.

Utorrent

I have downloaded and tried bittorrent, it didnot work. Presently I have utorrent on my system,still does not work. I have downloaded .torrent files/images on my desktop and try utorent, no result.

I ran knoppix from the cd, but it does not boot to the GUI as I have read.

when it gets to that point:
Starting single x-window session for user knoppix...........
probing /loading AGP modules..........root!ttyl:/#
NOthing happens from here. How can I load the GUI from here?
