How to Setup Notepad++ for Unity3D on Linux

As soon as you have Unity3D running on your favorite Linux distribution, it’s high time to install a tool for editing your scripts. MonoDevelop is a default editor for editing code, but I prefer using Notepad ++. If you prefer using MonoDevelop, just download a Windows installer to use it with Wine. In my opinion, using Linux version seems impossible for applying.

To get details how to install Unity3D on Linux, go to the link:
