    Default JEdit for OpenSuse11

    Hello guys,

    I'm new here. I started using opensuse last month and I think I want to use rather than Microsoft's. Anyway, I like to use JEdit, because I'm used to it and it's so easy to use especially in developing web applications (that's for my own opinion). I tried to look for it in the package and found it but after its installation, its nowhere to be found. I have no clue as to where it went. My problem is, I need JEdit. Will somebody help me find and install JEdit on my PC. Any help will be very much appreciated.

    I remember this software from long ago. According to the project webpage, jedit is cross-platform, using Java. If you cannot find it in OpenSUSE repositories or in the Build Service, the other alternatives are to install it using jpackage, a RPM repository, or to unpack the source package and run it with the minimum or higher version of a JDK. OpenSUSE should already have suitable JDKs as the minimum requirement is JDK 1.5.

    Sorry, disregard that (although that info is still useful for non-included Java packages), I see you have installed it and it indeed is in the repositories. You need to find the script or command that starts it up. Do:

    rpm -ql jedit

    That will give you a list of files from the package. Look for something in /usr/bin, maybe /usr/bin/jedit or /usr/bin/jedit.sh or something like that. When you have found the launching script, you can then make a GUI launcher for it.

    Hi
    It should reside in /usr/bin/jedit looks like you need to start it from
    a console session or create a desktop launcher. To find applications
    you install that may not provide a menu entry use the command which or
    whereis. eg;
    Code:
    malcolml@kermit-opensuse:~$ which jedit
    /usr/bin/jedit
    malcolml@kermit-opensuse:~$ whereis jedit
    jedit: /usr/bin/jedit /usr/bin/X11/jedit /usr/share/jedit /usr/share/man/man1/jedit.1.gz

    I install JEdit on my systems as well. As it's Java-based it's trivial
    to do. The Java-based installer you can find from the JEdit webpage
    will install nicely in SUSE distros. For example I always keep an
    'apps' directory in my user's home directory into which I install JEdit.

    Good luck.

    It may also be useful to know that I have a 1.6 JRE on my SLED system
    which I used in JEdit's startup script (in ~/bin) instead of the
    system's normal default JRE 1.4.

    Good luck.
