Historically, it has been hard to get UltraEdit working seamlessly on FreeBSD, but with recent versions, all UltraEdit features (including FTP/SFTP save) can be enabled. From experience, it seems to perform equally fast on FreeBSD as on Linux or Windows.

FreeBSD version: 10.2 (current stable, 64-bit)
Desktop: KDE (although it would most likely work well for any standard desktop)

1. Prepare your FreeBSD workstation for Linux compatibility:

    a. Install packages:
    # pkg install linux-c6-base
    # pkg install linux-c6-xorg-libs

    If for some reason these libraries aren't added as dependencies, install them too:
    # pkg install linux-c6-gtk2
    # pkg install linux-c6-libssh2
    # pkg install linux-c6-openssl
    # pkg install linux-c6-openssl-compat

    b. Add to /etc/rc.con

    c. Add to /boot/loader.conf

    d. Add to /etc/fstab
    linprocfs /compat/linux/proc linprocfs rw 0 0

2. Reboot FreeBSD

3. Go to and download "UltraEdit for Linux - generic tar" (32-bit version)

4. Unpack at any location of your choosing, for example /home/joeuser/uex

5. Make a small shell script: /home/joeuser/bin/uex with the contents:

(Don't forget to "chmod 755 /home/joeuser/bin/uex" and run the "rehash" command if you are in tcsh)

6. Execute "uex &" from the command line, or add a KDE menu entry pointing to /home/joeuser/bin/uex (you will even get the UltraEdit icon).

That should be all it takes! Please let me know if you have any problems or additional comments.
