Question web pages with linux

Is there a program like dreamweaver for linux?
Linux is the best for programming with c, but I don't want to learn html, I'm looking for a software like dreamweaver or similar.
thank you very much.

Hmmm... Thats really strange. I just got online to post about a nifty find I made last night and here is your thread.....

This is a topic that gets brought up over and over again. I used to use Dreamweaver all the time when I still used windows.... Always pissed me off that there didn't seem to be an equivalent in Linux.... Just built this from source last night and it is really nice..... It's not an exact clone but anybody who has used Dreamweaver or Frontpage should fall into step with this program after a short ammount of time... It's a gtk2/xft app that is built off of Mozilla Composer's source code... I'm a big Gnome/GTK fan so I think it looks really sharp.... Give it a try.... I built from source and then used Checkinstall to make a distrospecific package for it... It's got the "design" view and "html" view... It's just like those other progs only with a different face is all....


<edit> It's still not as comfortable as Dreamweaver tho... I'm also having some problems with images showing up with a "document relative directory"... Haven't tried to trouble shoot that yet.... If you try to open up a html with NVU, it won't import it either..... That really sucks... It's a brand new prog... I'll give em' some time and see how it goes.... </edit>

Unhappy compiling....

quote "Sure thing.... It will still take some getting used to.... It's not exactly like it by any means.... If you have any trouble building from source, don'thesitate to post on the same thread again.... It's alittle tricky.. The instructions are not so clear...."

I tried to compile it... everything ok until I notice it needs gtk...
found gtk, gtk needs glib >= 2.0, atk, pango.
I installed glib 2.4, but atk said that version 2.4 was reported by pkg-config, instead atk found version 2.3.2...
now... glib caused a crash with X. the message "... X respawning too fast..."
I recovered from the crash, but now i have old glib...

what a mess!

I don't know what to do now...

mane.x and I have been coresponding via email.... I decided to build from source on a fedora install and heres what I found... It goes over just fine on a Slack install....

I remembered how much I hate RPM distros actually... I quickly got frustrated and installed apt-get as soon as possible... (it's the first link)

apt-get update
apt-get install gtk2-devel
apt-get install gob2
apt-get install libIDL-devel

Now you can follow the instructions from:

One thing to note is that the patch will fail on 3 files in the CVS mozilla source code that you download.... It works just fine in Slackware so I assume it will be ok in Fedora as well.... Finally got it to build so I'm still waiting on it... It takes a good hour or more to build on my computer... You'll need 300+ Mb of free space as well... After everything is done with the build, you might want to install "checkinstall" and type "checkinstall" in the mozilla directory. You can make a nice little rpm or dep or tgz that is around 10mb.....

* also- I acidentally did a:

apt-get install gtk+-devel

Thinking I had the right package it was complaining about. I didn't. It wanted 'gtk2-devel'
Installing gtk+-devel thru apt get will take care of all those deps mane.x is talking about. Altho it sounds like you'll have to do a:

apt-get -f install

to take care of that mess, mane.x
