Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, CutePad is a text editor for Linux and Windows. It is an open-source mix between a text editor and a word processor, having support for images, links, hyperlinks, tables (unlike Notepad). Being created in Qt, it has an intuitive and colored interface, created to integrate good with Windows 8.1.
In this article I will show you how to install CutePad on the most popular Linux systems, including: Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE, Mageia, OpenMandriva and Arch Linux.
Because it is not available via any repository or ppa, we have to download the CutePad tar archive, extract it, set execution permissions on the installer and run it.
