What features of Notepad++ are you specifically looking for? There are quite a few Linux text editors with similar functionality. GNOME's gedit provides tabs and syntax highlighting. Others add in-line code compiling and debugging. What do you want in a text editor?

Syntax highlighting support for many programming languages/line numbers display/current line highlighting.
Configurable keyboard shortcuts.
Multiple encoding support.
Extensibility (support for plugins).
Some kind of a small file browser located somewhere in the sidebar to open files on the fly (this came as a plugin with Notepad++).
Compiling the source code without having to leave the editor.

There's also programmers' text editors such as emacs and vi.

If I may recommend Kate, it is one of my favourite text editors. I use Notepad++ in Windows at work but I definitely go to Kate first when in Linux. Thankfully most text editors in Linux provide at least syntax highlighting and usually much more.
