Build it yourself
|Qt 5.6 or higher||Qt 5.6 or higher|
Get the source
$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/notepadqq/notepadqq.git $ cd notepadqq
notepadqq$ ./configure --prefix /usr notepadqq$ make
If you encounter errors make sure to have the necessary libraries installed. For Ubuntu you can do that using apt-get:
notepadqq$ sudo apt-get install qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools qtwebengine5-dev libqt5websockets5-dev libqt5svg5 libqt5svg5-dev
notepadqq$ sudo yum install -y qt5-qtbase-devel qt5-qttools-devel qt5-qtwebengine-devel qt5-qtwebsockets-devel qt5-qtsvg-devel
You can run notepadqq from its build output folder. If however you want to install it, first build it by following the above steps, then run
notepadqq$ sudo make install
If the newest version of Qt isn't available on your distribution, you can use the online installer to get the latest libraries and install them into your home directory (
$HOME/Qt). Notepadqq will automatically use them.
Most distributions: Snap (recommended)
To install the latest stable version:
sudo snap install --classic notepadqq
You don't have the
snap command? Follow the instructions at https://docs.snapcraft.io/core/install and then install Notepadqq as shown above.
You can follow the unstable development releases from the "edge" channel.
You should prefer using Snap packages, which are natively supported on Ubuntu (see above). Anyway, Notepadqq is also available from an official PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:notepadqq-team/notepadqq sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install notepadqq
Download a deb package from the Ubuntu PPA: download
