Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, mEdit (MooEdit) is an open-source programming and around-programming text editor.
Among others, it has syntax highlighting features, configurable keyboard accceleration, regular expression search/replace, grep front-end and built-in file selector.
The latest version available is mEdit 1.2.0, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install MooEdit (mEdit) 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, Linux Lite 2.0, LXLE 14.04 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the medit tar.bz2 archive, extract it, cd into the extracted folder and install the app from sources (./configure, make, make install).
Follow the below instructions exactly, in order to get a succeessful installation:
$ wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/mooedit/files/medit/1.2.0/medit-1.2.0.tar.bz2
$ tar -xjvf medit-1.2.0.tar.bz2
$ cd medit-1.2.0
$ sudo mkdir -p /opt/medit
$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/medit
$ sudo make install
$ rm -rf medit-1.2.0.tar.bz2 medit-1.2.0
Optinal, to remove medit, do:
$ sudo rm -rf /opt/medit
