I realize that this is probably common knowledge for (most) everyone
else, but it's taken me a long time to figure it out (see my previous
posts regarding an UltraEdit like app for Linux). So, at risk of
getting flamed, I'm posting it anyway in the event that someone else is
having the same problem. In my defense, I've only been [trying to] use
Linux on the desktop for a short while (well, 1-2 years or so), so I'm
still feeling my way around.
A lot of what I do involves making simple updates / changes to client
websites (change a price, change a picture, etc.), and the ability in
UltraEdit to just open a file remotely [via FTP] and then save it
remotely [via FTP] was very nice. I had been looking for something in
Linux that replicated that ability. Specifically, what I was looking
for was something that had an 'open from ftp' or 'save to ftp' button.
What I found, though, was even better. With any of the various text
editors available in Linux, I can just choose 'Open', and then open an
FTP location. The one that I've found that seems to best suit my needs
is KDevelop. Anyway, just thought I'd stick that out there in case
someone else was having the same problem.
