How to Install Komodo Edit 10 in Ubuntu:

The official download page provides non-install packages for Linux, but it lacks a shortcut icon for Ubuntu.

To install this editor with Ubuntu integration, use Mystic-Mirage’s PPA repository:

1. Add PPA.

Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mystic-mirage/komodo-edit

Type your password when it asks, though there’s no visual feedback, and hit Enter to continue.

2. Now install the editor via your system package manager, or run commands:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install komodo-edit

For those who don’t want to add PPA, grab the .deb package from HERE (i386 for 32bit, amd64 for 64bit), and click install via Ubuntu Software.
