‘FocusWriter’ is my favorite distraction-free writing application. It runs of multiple OS platforms, completely free to use, & the Windows version is portable as well.
Recently it was updated twice (latest version is 1.4.6) both of which have brought lots of bug fixes. So if you are using a version lower than 1.4.5, then perhaps it is time for updating it.
If you are using ‘Linux Mint Debian 2014‘, then please follow the below procedure.
If you are using the 64-bit version then download the ‘deb’ package from here. 32-bit users, please get this one instead. Once the download completes, double click on it and the ‘GDebi’ package install will install it for you.
If you use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 13.10, 12.10 & 12.04 LTS then use the below commands.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install focuswriter
For Windows, Mac OS X & other GNU/Linux distribution users, please visit this page for obtaining the proper packages & install instructions.
