Hey thanx for the tips. I have a question though. I installed jedit via a debian file and it has installed successfully. However when i run the jedit application there is no startup icon the cursor just loads a bit then…nothing. Any ideas? I’ve tried installing and reinstalling many times with different installation packages but nothing. Im running linux mint on virtual box.
