Leafpad is the standard text editor of LXDE. It is a simple, lightweight, fast GTK text editor for Unix systems with few dependencies on external libraries. It is an example of computing minimalism and features a fast, almost instantaneous startup time on most modern hardware. Recent versions support printing.


  • When a file is open in Leafpad, and you try to open it again, there is no warning. If one of the windows is saved, any changes that are saved in the other since opening are lost.
