Word Perfect in Linux?

Right, GEdit is a GUI editor. Full Gnome install isn't requited, just a few
Gnome components, so it'll work under KDE or XFCE, but you do need a to be
running X. You can launch gedit form the command line by running 'gedit'.
You can also pass it a filename on the command line to have it open that
file directly.

Komodo is an IDE from ActiveState. A few years back, they rebuilt their IDE
on top of the Gecko rendering engine (used by Mozilla Firefox). Their
open-source product is Komodo Edit (http://komodoide.com/komodo-edit/).
Komodo is their commercial product; it has a few more bells and whistles.
I've used both off and on for years until I switched to Sublime about a
year ago.

Sublime Text is the other text editor I mentioned (
http://www.sublimetext.com/). Both Sublime and Komodo are text editors, not
word processors. So they may or may not meet your needs.
