Gedit in terminal gives error messages [SOLVED]

Postby ron_h on Tue Jun 17, 2014 3:18 am

LMDE 201403 Cinnamon 64bit

When I invoke gedit in a terminal, I get error messages, and I don't like error messages. As best I can see, the gedit session updates the files concerned. Is there anything I can do to get rid of the error messages ?

Code: Select all
sudo gedit -some system file -
[sudo] password for ron:

** (gedit:6816): WARNING **: Could not load Gedit repository: Typelib file for namespace 'GtkSource', version '3.0' not found

The main purpose of GTK's warning and error messages is to irritate people who don't like any warnings.

Then GTK was successful.

I will try to be calm when I next see such messages. However the old story of the boy crying 'Wolf' comes to mind, and I hope I don't ignore real, meaningful error messages :-(
