FAQ

Where did Kate go?
It is often thought that Kate is missing, as it is usually not listed in distribution repositories. In fact it is now part of a larger development package, so you must install kdesdk.
How can I print out with Line Numbers?
In the Print dialog click on the Options button, choose the Text Settings tab and tick the Print line numbers box.
