I am trying to install gmate in ubuntu 12.04, I followed instructions from here

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-on-rails/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gedit-gmate

The package successfully installed, But I can't see any of the plugins included in gmate in gedit plug-ins list . What In am missed? Is gmate not compatable with Gedit included in ubuntu 12.04?

It is an API issue, GEDIT changed API So most of the gmate plugins are broken
