I run Quanta in Gnome just fine.  The only thing that I wish it did 
would be function insight on my own code with PHPDoc like ZDE does.  
Quanta is free though, does folding, links to PHP documentation, 
bookmarks, preview, etc.  Pretty nice editor, my fav as far as the free 
ones go.  I'm going  to install Eclipse right now to check it out.
