Komodo edit is a code editor and an alternative to notepad++, in fact, its even better, and runs in all 3 i.e. Linux, Mac and Windows. Installing it in linux can be a bit tricky for newbies, so here’s what you need to do.

Download the archive, and extract it wherever you wish, but if you dont wanna complicate things for yourself, just extract them into the home folder.

Open a terminal windows by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T, and navigate to the directory where you extracted the archive. To do so, type:

cd your_directory.

If you extracted it into the home folder, just copy and paste this code:

cd Komodo-Edit-8.0.0-12188-linux-x86_64

Once in the directory, type:

./install.sh, and press enter. Now it’ll prompt you for the install directory, which doesnt honestly make much difference, so just leave it blank and press enter. That’s it!
