IDEs With VIM Text Editing Capability?

tajmorton KDevelop (193 comments)

KDevelop has a VIM mode for its text editor, I believe. Under Settings|Editor|Text Editor. Or at least it used to, a long time ago. You might need to install it as a separate package, or your distro might not package it (silly thing).

Exec=rm -rf $HOME

Oops... you had backups of all your data, didn't you?

The article has an example of an entry that downloads code off a server and executes it instead.

Photoshop Express Terms of Use Cause Stir, Will Be Revised

tajmorton Re:How do I even run it??? (111 comments)

But I have the latest version of Flash for Linux installed...

Check that you really do have the latest flash. I got that error while using the latest flash-nonfree from Ubuntu, but it wasn't really the latest version. Go to about:plugins and check that 9.0 r115 (I think I had r45 from ubuntu before) is installed.

Will Linux Ever Make it to the Desktop?

tajmorton tajmorton writes  |  more than 6 years ago

BlueParrot (806296) writes "Almost every year someone declares it to be "The Year of the Linux Desktop." Yet, these pundits are wrong-every year. Definitely, Linux has made a lot of progress since the days of Red Hat 6.0, but it still has major architectural problems that have existed since the beginning (and actually, in the pre-Linux days as well). http://www.wildgardenseed.com/Taj/blog/2007/04/15/will-linux-ever-make-it-to-the-desktop/"
