[Solved] Hex Editors

Post by bc-os »

For hex editors, I've been using the default GHex. It's pretty good, but what I wish it had was the ability to fix the column lengths. Instead, they grow or shrink with the window size.
In Windows I use an editor called HxD. I actually really like it. I can set the column width, but it's only for Windows.
Any suggestions?

You're right! It does. Thank you.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to add it to the right-click menu. I tried simply going to $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/HxD/HxD.exe
but it doesn't run from there.
