I tried installing Quanta and it yells at me and asked if I have KDE
installed properly. Ubuntu doesn't come with KDE at all, otherwise
maybe it would allow me to install it. Maybe I will try an older
version that doesn't seem to be KDE specific. I think it would be
rewarding to figure out the folding in Vim since I can use it for my
remote SSH sessions as well, but not having a lot of luck with that
either. I got the indent method to work just fine, but syntax doesn't
do a thing. Lots and lots of brain hurting RTFM and I'm sure I'll get
somewhere with it. A nice gui would be great for now though.
