To keep this short download Notepad++
Double click on the Installer File (
exe), It'd launch a Wine instance.
Because this is our first use, wine might ask us to install one or two additional packages required to run Windows Applications. Allow to install them.
After that our installer for Notepad++ would start and we'd proceed to install the app as if we were on Windows.
Well, we're up and running folks!
You can access your installed application later by the Application Menu
