Komodo Editor 6.1.1

Hello friends,

As I put up on my facebook status, from now on I would be dedicating time to update my blog and share the information that I get while browsing the web or hacking on some php code.

Until now, I've used Geany, which was really an excellent editor for php. But now, I recently came across Komodo which has become my favourite Editor with the first edit of php code.

I liked the features and the way it really works while editing code especially. The way it handles blocks of code is truly worth appreciating. Here is a small how-to on installing Komodo IDE 6.1.1 on Ubuntu/Debian.

Step 1: At the time of writing this post, on 4/4/11, Komodo Editor is in the 6th Version. You can get it by clicking here.

Step 2: After downloading the tarball, you can extract it using the following command ( Ctrl + Shift + T for terminal ).

tar xzvf Komodo-Edit-6.1.1-7295-linux-libcpp6-x86_64.tar.gz

Step 3: Using the cd command you can just browse into the extracted directory and then run the file using the command :


NOTE : There shouldn't be any permission related issues, but if there are any, please do run the below command and then go for the file.

sudo chmod 755

Step 4: In the middle of the installation ( which won't take much time ) you will be prompted for which directory the installation should proceed in. There you can give the path / address of the folder of your choice or, you can just give it as,

/home/(user_name)/Komodo-Edit-6/ and then move on.

Step 5: Now is the time to create a Desktop Shortcut, which probably will be a favourite among the migrants from Windows to GNU. So, you can do that by running the following command in the terminal.

sudo ln -s "/home/(user_name)/Komodo-Edit-6/bin/komodo" /usr/local/bin/komodo

That will create a symbolic link of the original executable file onto the Desktop.

PS : I am working with Komodo-Edit-6 on the 64Bit version on Ubuntu 10.10 and its working perfectly fine.

More about php and my projects and related work, later. :)
