Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112549
missing gedit plugins
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
With gnome 2.4 the Gedit team split gedit in two tarballs: gedit and
gedit-plugins; today while looking for the diff plugin I noticed that
gedit-plugins are not shipped with FC1.
Would it be possible to add a gedit-plugins rpm? (Note that these
plugins were shipped with previous versions of RH as part of gedit itself)
Doh! I wish I had seen this report sooner and I would have lobbied
for this to be added to FC2. I believe it is too late now.
Warren, should we get this into FC3? Are the gedit plugins interesting?

Yes I think so, at least a couple of them, e.g. the "diff" plugin

Nope: unfortunately gedit-plugins upstream package is currently
unamainatined for lack of resources, see
The current FC gedit package should include the plugins, they just
aren't enabled by default (use Preferences to enable more). A new
package taht enables the Spell checker plugin by default is now in

Dan, I know that the gedit package contains some plugins... I even
wrote one of them :)
What this bug was about is the *additional* gedit-plugins package
(gedit-plugins module in cvs.gnome.org) which contains some more
plugins which starting with gedit 2.4 were moved out from the main
tarball. The most significant of these is the diff plugin.
So I don't think this is a dup of the above bug. However I don't know
if I should reopen or not, especially considering that the upstream
package unfortunately is at the moment unmaintained...
Ah, sorry, right you are. I think, when the package becomes
re-maintained, we should do a new bug for Feature/Enhancement for it?
Does that sound OK?
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
