Running NotePad++ Under Non-Windows Systems

Installing NotePad++ on Unix and Mac:

1) Download NotePad++ using the link on this page.

2) Rename the Notepad++ folder ensuring that the name only contains Latin characters, no special symbols (!#@ etc.), no spaces and does not begin with a digit.

3) Download Wine Stable:

Ubuntu :


Please note that system security settings in MacOS must enable installation of third-party software. To check whether that is so, go to System Preferences → Privacy and Security, click the padlock icon and allow execution of programs downloaded from App Store and identified developers.

Additionally, for Wine to work successfully on MacOS, be sure to install XQuartz:

4) Open the renamed Notepad++ folder and right-click on the notepad++.exe. Choose “Open in Wine”. Be aware that Wine emulates Windows, therefore Windows hotkeys should be used in Wine (Ctrl+C instead of Command+C etc.)
