Xed is a text editor which supports most standard editor features, extending this basic functionality with other features not usually found in simple text editors. Xed is a graphical application which supports editing multiple text files in one window (known sometimes as tabs or MDI).

Xed (XML text EDitor) is a simple text editor with more features than the average editor. It features support for UTF-8 to encode edited files, auto indentation, syntax highlighting, printing, and file comparison among others. Xed also contains the extensible using plugins and also with pre-installed plugins to help users edit files quicker and more easily.

In this article I will show you how to install Xed EDitor on Ubuntu 17.04

Xed Editor Installation

Before installing Xed editor first of all you have to add the below repository follow the below command to add the required repository:

# add-apt-repository ppa:embrosyn/xapps
A new fancy thing is on the block. It's called X-Apps: a bunch of GTK3 DE-agnostic applications that are not so tightly tied to a particular distribution/DE as their ancestors (forkees) might be, developed by the Linux Mint crew:
* pix (image management application based on gThumb)
* xed (text editor based on Pluma),
* xplayer (media player based on Totem),
* xviewer (image viewer based on Eye of GNOME), and
* xreader (document reader based on Atril)

This PPA is in a quite early, experimental stage, but expect the same packaging tempo and distribution series set, if everything goes alright - latest two long-term (LTS) and short-term (STS) support releases, which means:
* Ubuntu 16.04, Xenial Xerus (xenial),
* Ubuntu 17.04, Zesty Zapus (zesty).

Xenial builds rely on Jonathon F's MATE 1.18 PPA, and because of that Xenial users are strongly advised to add his PPA prior to adding this one in order to prevent eventual breakage.
