Are you looking for a note taking app? LibreOffice Writer is a word processor mainly.

like notepad for windows?

Cheers but is there something like notepad for windows equivalent

I do not know how far you are on Linux, and which DE you use.

  • nano the text editor for the terminal (installed).

  • micro is an other more sophisticated terminal text editor (sudo dnf install micro).

  • and For the Gnome Desktop there is the Text Editor (installed).

  • leafpad (sudo dnf install leafpad) Gnome (gtk)

  • mousepad (sudo dnf install mousepad) Gnome (gtk)

I hope you find something what fits for you from the list above.


Thanks legend, leafpads what I’m looking for.

The obvious ones are:

  • Gedit (gedit) - used to be default text editor in Gnome
  • Gnome’s Text Editor (gnome-text-editor) - is the “new” default text editor in Gnome.

Yes thanks to display the correct command name. “Text Editor” appears when people look for Text… in gnomes search field.

Gnome Desktop comes with a Text editor.

Also there is

  • Vim/NeoVim which is amazingly powerful and highly customizable.
  • Emacs because it can do anything + Org Mode.
