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.
