I downloaded and installed it in VL 6.0 Light, and I got this error message;

error while loading shared libraries: libQt.Script.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I looked in the libraries repository, but QT 4.4 is an 81 MB download : apart from anything else, it's totally unrealistic for dialup. Can anyone please advise?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic.

I would have to suggest that you give Tea a miss. That version is getting a bit long in the tooth, and the author is no longer developing GTK versions. I've not had much luck building the QT version (which would also require some large dep downloads, unfortunately).

Depending on what you need from an editor, I would suggest either Medit or Geany, both of which are in the repos and have less in the way of deps.

Thanks for replying,

OK, fair enough. I've used Geany in the past but don't know much about Medit.

Text editors for Vector (and Linux): I'd like to see an equivalent of some of the great Windows text editors such as Boxer, Textpad and UltraEdit which combine power with ease of use for actually writing with; most Linux editors are designed around the needs of programmers rather than writers.

The two I do like are Joe's editor (which has Wordstar keystroke compatibility) and Cream, which is basically a set of scripts which run on top of GVim and make it easier to use.

GVim (and Vim) is a fantastically capable editor once you're fully familiar with it. I know enough to get by in Vim and use it sometimes but maybe I'm just too lazy to put in the effort (and it requires a lot) to master it properly Smiley

Vim is my favorite. JEdit for a X editor. Kate is very good if you happen to use kde, too big and big deps otherwise. I have been trying Komodo Edit (aka Openkomodo) and looks pretty good.
BTW, I always look at TextMate for Mac in programming screencasts and I admit I would like to try it Grin

You can try to run one of those windows text editors under wine.  I've successfully ran ultraedit (some old version though).

Anyway, if you know vim (or emacs) well, you don't need anything else.  And both are multiplatform, so you'll find them everywhere you go.

Thanks for your replies. I've heard of JEdit but not komodo; I may check it/them out soon.

I prefer to avoid Wine for reasons of personal taste (using it seems to me like an admission of defeat on my part as regards the Linux options available), but nevertheless, if the Windows options are clearly the best, I may give it a go.
