This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

    • Extremely good singing pitch detection (usable even with laptop or webcam microphones)
    • Intelligent gameplay determines what the player attempted to do
      • Avoid accidental hammer-ons / pull-offs, among other things
      • No more "wtf, I didn't make any mistake there" feeling
    • Controllers are autodetected (no need to configure keys)
    • Song formats: FoFUltraStar, SingStar XML, StepMania
    • C++ for high performance, rapid development and solid code
    • OpenGL 2.1 and SVG for nice graphics
