Why is Kompozer no longer in the repositories? Can any one suggest a new alternative (other than BlueFish) ?

More From » ide


Kompozer was removed from the repository as it is no longer being maintained by its maintainer in the upstream(Debian).

As for your second question,
a suitable alternative for it would be Bluegriffon.

This is what it looks like:
Bluegriffon Window

To install it do the following steps:

  1. Download the installer.

  2. Right click on the Installer file. Pick the "Permissions" tab and
    check the Allow executing file as program checkbox. (For security
    reasons, most files aren't executable by default.)

  3. Double-click on the installer file, and the GUI to install BlueGriffon will start.

About Bluegriffon, from its website:

BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web.
Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox, it's a modern and
robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web

Partially reference:

The latest bluegriffon can also be installed from the getdeb repository, by doing the following steps:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb precise-getdeb apps" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bluegriffon
