Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, CodeSlayer is an open-source code editor, written and C and using GTK+ as interface. Despite the fact that it is lightweight, it has all the features of a modern editor, including: tabbed interface, find and replace function, file navigation system which is organized into projects and global search across projects.
The latest version available is CodeSlayer 4.3.1, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- File search plugin integrated into the core project. This allows you to search for files easily when working with projects. You can activate it from the Search menu (Search For Document), or use the shortcut key Ctrl+K.
- Fixed two major bugs that were symptoms of the same problem. If you experienced any lockups when adding and/or removing projects multiple times within the same session it is now fixed.
In this article I will show you how to install CodeSlayer 4.3.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via the GetDeb repository, installing CodeSlayer 4.3.1 on the listed Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the repository and the key to your system, update the local repository index and install the soundconverter package. Like this:
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu trusty-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
$ wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install codeslayer
Optional, to remove soundconverter, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove codeslayer
