Ubuntu – Notepad++ – cannot launch Firefox


I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and Notepad++ 6.6.4 (through WINE)

Under the 'Run' tab, I clicked on "Launch in Firefox" , but nothing happened

  • I uninstalled Notepad++ and WINE, then shutdown.
  • I re-installed Notepad++ and WINE and still have the same problem.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Notepad++ doesn't work out of the box via Wine with the installed Firefox software.

You will need to install Firefox under Wine to make it work, using the Windows installer for Firefox. Notepad++ should then work with Firefox under Wine.

An alternative to Notepad++ is the already-installed gedit software. It does most of the same functions as Notepad++ in terms of syntax highlighting and such, and comes included with Ubuntu.
