Yes, please do, and let us know what you needed to add to your Ubuntu
system to make it work. I tried a quick stab at it and it told me I
needed unix2dos, which apparently is not on mine and not available
through the Ubuntu mirrors. 

Btw, the screenshot looks a lot like that of TreePad. I would like to do
a comparisons some time and see which is more usable. I'd gladly move on
if there was something better.
