Gedit on Linux Mint 17, Fix For Embedded Terminal Plugin:
So far, none of the "solutions" in this thread are valid solutions.
First of all, LM17 preinstalled Gedit embedded terminal plugin simply doesnt work, no matter what you do.
So, you need to upgrade to Gedit 3.1, and its really simple...
1. Uninstall Gedit with synaptic package manager.
2. Download Gedit common and install support: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/gedit-common
3. Download Gedit program: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/gedit
4. Download Gedit plugins: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/gedit-plugins
To use these links, select the instllation (amd or i386) from the bottom of thier respective page.
Note: Gedit is now called "GEDIT" in your programs menu. It is no longer named "Text Editor".
And you need to turn on the plugin in your preferences under plugins selection in gedit.
