I installed the plugin (copied the files to /usr/lib/gedit/plugins/) but when I hit the f5 when a python file is open in the gedit,nothing happens.Only a message is seen at the bottom of the gedit window saying the file has been executed but no terminal window opens or anything else.
I really want this plugin to work so thanks for anyone who can help.
Python 2.7.3 is installed on my system.
I partially solved the problem.when i opened gedit with sudo by
and executed the file I got the error in terminal:
ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for GConf Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/gedit/plugins/betterpythonconsole/consoleinterface.py", line 56, in <module> from gi.repository import Gtk, GConf, Pango, GObject, Gdk ImportError: cannot import name GConf
so I googled and find this link and installed "gobject-introspection" and "gir1.2-gconf-2.0"
now I am able to execute code but executing the code (for example a graphic producing one) is way too slow compared to opening it on the terminal directly.
