Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 699034
Gedit-latex-plugin doesn't load.
Last modified: 2012-08-06 16:05:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Plug-in is installed, but he isn't shown in the Gedit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : gedit
Arch : i686
Epoch : 2
Version : 3.0.1
Release : 1.fc15
Name : gedit-latex-plugin
Arch : i686
Version : 0.2
Release : 2.fc15
TeXlive 2010 from the jnovy:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install package
2. open gedit
3. look for Plugin in the configuration
It isn't here.
Plugin ready for the enabling. In the file menu appears "new LaTeX document"
Plugin is installed in the /usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins, but others are in the /usr/lib/gedit/plugins. So I copied plugin files to the "gedit/plugins".
Then I get:
(gedit:1734): libpeas-WARNING **: Could not find 'Module' in '/usr/lib/gedit/plugins/Gedit/LaTeXPlugin.plugin'
(gedit:1734): libpeas-WARNING **: Error loading '/usr/lib/gedit/plugins/Gedit/LaTeXPlugin.plugin'
I kept LaTeXPlugin.plugin from the repository.
It seems that the package hasn't adapted to the new plugin API of gedit 3.0
I have sent an email to the upstream maintainer (sourceforge bug report system seems broken at the moment) because this is broken beyond my capabilities to repair it. Let's see what happens
Upstream bug report
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
