In this article I will show you how to add / install plugins for gEdit.

As you may know, gEdit is very powerful, because of the plugins that can be added to it.

You can run a terminal from inside it, for example, to compile the source code you have just written, as in a modern IDE, you have plugins for syntax highlighting, etc.

To add plugins to Gedit, paste the plugin files to:

  • ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/ – to use the plugins for your user only (if the directory does not exist, create it)
  • /usr/lib/gedit/plugins/ – to use the plugins globally

Next, all you have to do is enable the plugins, from the Gedit Menu: Edit –> Preferences –> Plugins (enable checkbox to activate the plugin)
