Help with installing Nedit on Ubuntu

Asked by Travis


I just installed a dual boot onto my machine with ubuntu and xp. However, i need to write programs for school and we use Nedit to do so. I would need to log in to the schools server and access Nedit in the server. I also would need to use a compiler called "g++?" I just need help installing Nedit for ubuntu and this g++ compiler to be able to do my programs. Any help is appreciated.

A much better approach is to use a package manager. E.g. adept of synaptic. Search for nedit and g++ and select them for installation.

Can you help with this problem?
