Text Editors - Top Linux Ubuntu/Debian/Mint Options

1.) gedit/pluma

both very good the only thing I wish is that there was an autosave for unsaved documents!  The only other competitor which is similar but I prefer less is kwrite (although I think kwrite may have proper autosave)

pluma seems to be a renamed gedit yet gedit is still installable on Linux Mint)
 

2.) kwrite/kate

very similar to gedit/pluma but doesn't seem as nice and smooth

 

3.) leafpad

very basic like Microsoft Notepad Text Editor

4.) Scribes

again more for coding seems heavy duty/slow to load and weird

5.) Cream

seems ancient and a basic code editor
