So I've just had to do a reinstall and as part of that process, I'm starting a new account to remove some of the crufty config I've built up over time.
I've been fairly successful cherry-picking certain applications' configuration by copying over their old directories but
gedit is being a pain.
I've already copied over the following:
.gconf/apps/gedit-2 .local/share/gedit .config/gedit
And that has allowed me to use my old plugins but nothing else. It's not remembering colours, which plugins were enabled or individual plugin config.
I'm coming from the same version of Ubuntu so would have expected this to cater for all my settings. I'm afraid there might be config stuck in
