High!

Last weekend, my friend and I got POV-Ray working under Linux (Sidux) on 
his quaternary computer... he was amazed about POV-Ray's rendering speed 
compared to Windows XP, but disappointed about the spartanic editor 
interface - when POVing, I normally use KEdit.

So, does an editor frontend similar to the one coming with POV-Ray for 
Windows exist for Debian Linux?

See you in Khyberspace!

  I think there was something similar, but personally I use emacs with the
pov-mode extension. It looks like this:

Yes, this question is probably the most asked around, and though there 
are text editors insanely more powerful and featureful than pov's one, 
like vim or emacs, most users with Windows background do not want to 
learn them or any other text editing paradigm different from notepad's.

I recommend your friend either run pov win through wine or take 30 
minutes of his life to learn the basics of vim or emacs and have much 
better text editing skills for the rest of his life.

If you are ready for the full way, install eclipse and povclipse plugin.
Now, you will really need a lot of memory to get the java-eclipse running 
smoothly while rendering a big scene...

	Not a text editor per se, kpovmodeler might be worth a look for those
who want to get a POV GUI under Linux.  It is for KDE but should also work
under other DEs such as Gnome, provided the KDE libs are installed.  There's
already the kpovmodeler package in the Debian and related repositeries.  See
http://www.kpovmodeler.org for screenshots.

Kate is the best. It even provides syntax highlighting for .pov files in the
same way that WinPov does.

Stay away from kpovmodeller.

As a side note, how do I set other editors in Windows to automatically render a
file using POV-Ray? My favorite editors are Notepad++ and to a lesser extent
SciTE.

In fact, this would make a good wiki article, so if anyone has any tips on using
POV-Ray in conjunction with a (any) text editor on any platform, please post
them here.

This is what I do in linux:
Use Kate, which allows for multiple tabbed files to be open.
Have one file be "zini.ini" which calls out the Input File and scene settings to
be used.
Keep one Konsole open which has a previous command of "povray zini.ini" in it.
When I want to render, I go to the Konsole, hit up arrow and enter. (That's one
extra mouse click to switch to Konsole and two keystrokes, just a little bit
less convenient than POV-Ray for Windows' "Render" button.)
