KATE is a quite advanced GUI editor that should be able to everything
that Notepad++ does... (And it is possible to run KATE under Windows
as well...) (I'm more a Vim / Notepad2 / KWrite fan than Notepad++)
See: http://kate-editor.org/ and as your distro's forum for help
You should be able to run Wine as root if you changed to it properly.
("su -", not sudo / su) ("sux -" / manual DISPLAY / xauth tweaking
might be needed under some distributions for X to work...) Windows
text editors are likely to break unix line endings though...
