If you are using Notepad++ on Ubuntu using the unofficial Snap/Wine method, I think the executable is called notepad-plus-plus.

  • Yup, found it, thank you. I was trying to set it as the default editor for Filezilla on Ubuntu but cant seem to get the syntax right. It was so simple on my Windblows machine. I'll post a more specific question to that effect. Thanks again :-)
