As Clint Eastwood would say, “There are two types of text editors in the world, the ones for coding and the others”. Well, Qute (pronounce “cute”) is certainly among the others. it’s a text editor with some advanced features in terms of eye candy. In other terms, not only does it support Tex and Markdown, it’s also a pleasure to work with its visually-appealing interface. If you are tired of the console or just want to test something different, you can try Qute for Linux (or Mac or PC).
There are no official packages (yet) for Ubuntu, so if you want to install Qute, the fastest way for any distribution is the official website. Download the file, decompress it, and launch the executable “Qute”. A first good point about it: Qute is pretty small and can be easily installed or put on a USB drive. However, do take note that some advanced features may require an extra package called PANDOC.
