You are on Linux Mint 14 I think? Linux Mint 14 ships with an older version of the packages gedit and gedit-common, but not of the package gedit-plugins. So those gedit-plugins are not compatible with your gedit. As to why, see the edit by Mint Kenobi on this comment: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2205#comment-80475
. Basically, the newer gedit version is lacking features that the older version had and so the Linux Mint developers decided to include the older version.
Not to worry though, you can install the older gedit-plugins easily. First remove the gedit-plugins you had installed!!!
Next you need to download the older version of gedit-plugins and you also need to download libgucharmap7. The links for both downloads are:
At the bottom of the pages pick the link for your architecture, then pick a mirror and download the .deb files. Next, open your file manager and double-click the downloaded .deb files to install them. Do the libgucharmap7 first, the gedit-plugins last. Next, run this command to pin the gedit-plugins version. Else the Update Manager will soon install the newer version of gedit-plugins
- Code: Select all
echo gedit-plugins hold | sudo dpkg --set-selections
There you go, you now have the gedit-plugins working again
