Great work guyz!
To get EditPlus working under Linux, you need to install the popular '''Wine''' software. Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. To install Wine on Ubuntu or Debian GNU/Linux, enter the following at the command line:
[http://s-url.net/0uyr fat black lesbians] |
[http://s-url.net/0uwe disney jasmine hentai] |
apt-get install wine
[http://s-url.net/0uvd japanese anime porn] |
[http://s-url.net/0uvh ebony porn stars]
In a terminal window, download the latest [http://www.editplus.com/download.html EditPlus Windows installer] in your home directory.
cd ~
wget <nowiki>ftp://ftp.editplus.com/epp231_en.exe</nowiki>
Then invoke this command to start the installation process:
wine ./epp231_en.exe
Once it's installed, go to where EditPlus was installed, e.g.
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/EditPlus\ 2/
and run this command:
wine ./editplus.exe
It should start running and you should be good to go.
As an alternative, if you have a full installation of '''wine''' on your Linux system, shortcuts are auto-configured for Windows '''.EXE''' files. Double-clicking on '''epp230_en.exe''' in your desktop file browser will auto-magically bring up '''wine''' with the program loaded.

Post-Install Tips

Create a shortcut

Note: Wine should do this automatically if you choose to add an icon to your desktop at the end of the installation.

You can create a desktop shortcut to EditPlus, so that clicking the icon will bring it up in wine.

Instructions for Gnome:

  1. Download the EditPlus icon Editplus.png to your desktop
  2. Right click on the Desktop and select "Create Launcher..."
  3. Set the name to: EditPlus
  4. Set the command to: wine "C:\Program Files\EditPlus 2\editplus.exe"
  5. Click the "No Icon" button and select the EditPlus icon you downloaded


If your Wine apps are using the ugly font that it picks by default, install the Microsoft Tahoma font. It can be downloaded here. Then simply run:

wine ./tahoma32.exe

and follow the prompts. Note: installing this font may cause the column marker not display the correct current column. Reason currently unknown.

If you have Debian or a Debian-based distro (such as Ubuntu), you should be able to download and install Microsoft's Core Web Fonts through "apt-get":

apt-get install msttcorefonts

If you are running Gentoo Linux, you can simply install Windows fonts through a package in portage, called corefonts:

emerge -av corefonts

For other fonts, see Fonts.

Windows Theme

The default Windows widgets (buttons, menus, etc) that come with Wine look pretty ugly compared to a nicely polished Gnome interface. Fear not! You can change the theme that Wine uses to make it look more Gnome/WinXP-like.

  1. Create a directory for the theme:
    mkdir -p ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Resources/themes/royale
  2. Download the Royale theme here
    wget http://download.softpedia.com/dl/0d15b697c444055149b9fb0321b76a3f/45ea0d77/100013027/software/desktop/Royale_theme.zip
  3. Unzip the downloaded file and move into the directory above:
    unzip Royale_theme.zip; cp Royale\ Theme\ for\ Win\ XP.exe ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Resources/themes/royale
  4. Install Royale theme and follow the prompts
    wine ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Resources/themes/royale/Royale\ Theme\ for\ Win\ XP.exe
  5. Run winecfg, under the "Desktop Integration" tab, select the "Media Center style" as the Theme

Fixing the keyboard shortcuts

You may not have realized it in Windows, but under Linux it can be handy to change some default keybindings (e.g. Ctrl+W to close a tab instead of Ctrl+F4). Use Document > Permanent Settings > Keyboard to do this.


This tip not only applies to EditPlus, but ANY *nix app. First, install Fuse[1]. Then install the Fuse filesystem SSHFS [2]. Now you can mount SFTP at a normal mount-point and open/save files just like you would to a local directory.

Known Bugs

  • Internet Explorer within EditPlus does not work.
  • Tools > Preferences does not seem to work in some versions of Wine, and in fact, may cause it to freeze. If this is the case in your version and you need to edit your preferences, you might try:
    1. upgrading your version of Wine
    2. access the Preferences dialog through Project > Manage Project > Edit Project
    3. hand edit the configuration files located in the installation directory (and have a good laugh at the serious misspellings in some of those files). Installation files are usually located in a path like
      ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/EditPlus 2/
  • If you happen to be using Synergy at the same time that you're running EditPlus through Wine, and you copy something on a connected Windows box and bring the mouse focus back to Linux, then move the mouse over an open document in EditPlus, EditPlus will crash. It is probably extremely unlikely that you would happen to be running this specific system setup, so this bug will probably not apply to you. Copying and pasting between EditPlus and native Linux programs on the same machine does not appear to be an issue.
  • Ctrl S for Save may switch between two open Wine apps with some wine configurations. To workaround this, you can:
    1. change the Editplus hot key for Save one of two methods:
      1. use the Preferences dialog to change the key binding
      2. edit the Editplus configuration file default.key in the installation directory
    2. change the wine hot key (tutorial coming soon)
  • Saving larger files over ftp might result in the ftp dialog hanging at 100% with some configurations. The newer wine releases still give you a chance to push the cancel button which after some time will give you a message "cancelled by user" whereas with earlier version all you could do is terminate Editplus.
  • Opening a file may mess up the window drawing under Wine. There are a few ways to correct this (hitting Enter usually works, although this won't work on read-only files if you've set them to be uneditable. The best solution I've found is Alt-D-X (Refresh STX), which redraws the window. You can bind this to a more handy keystroke (e.g. Ctrl-Alt-Z) and just get used to hitting it each time you open a file. There might be a better solution out there...

Linux/BSD Alternatives

If EditPlus under WINE is unacceptable to you, there are Linux/BSD text editors with features comparable to EditPlus.
