You mean web design applications for Linux - there are a few. I use and like "Bluefish" as it is simple, fast and lightweight. Try it out - use the package manager to install it.

Actually you might want to be a little more specific. What kind of web design program? Many people who use Linux like to do a lot of coding by hand--actually using HTML not using a WYSIWYG program. I assume you used to use a program in whatever-land you came from... PC-land? What program did you use? Suggest that and we can tell if what program is like it.

I will second Bluefish. You may also want to have a go at gPHPEdit if you are interested in doing some backend coding.

Hi, if you don't like a textual editor, you can try Kompozer that's a WYSIWYG (What You See IS What You Get) editor.
I use Bluefish since my first Linux operating system. Also Quanta+ is a good editor textual/WYSIWYG, but tailored for KDE.

There are also Screem, and Amaya (recommended by W3C).

Ciao :-)

I'm used to using Dreamweaver and want to know what my options are when I move over to Mint.

I mostly hand code (and like the suggestions as I type), need built in file manager and a quick upload shortcut (In dreamweaver it's Ctrl+Shift+U)

Any recommendations?

Thank you

Hy!
I recommend you give Netbeans a try - it has some built-in html completition and a style builder , file browser is built in , but it is project based, and you can upload files through ftp with it , didn't see a shortcut but i think you can make one.

I will add my vote for the Bluefish and Kompozer recommendations above. I switch back and forth between them.

I've had good experiences with Kompozer and NetBeans, though nowadays I only ever use gedit. Then again I build almost all the website I do in Drupal so I have little use for an IDE as most all of the coding is simply tweaking a few css and php files.

Not to dive farther off topic or anything, but Asheville has become quite the booming tech market in recent years. All sorts of good things happening.

Pick one of the CMS packages mentioned above and install on your LAMP server. Each CMS is supported by a rich environment of assistance to get you started.

There is also vim and your personal skills. That always works out the best in the end! ^_^
I used Quanta, it was okay but i personally like the ability to program everything your self. and refresh your browser every update!
