I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 a few days ago, and since then have not been able to use one of my favourite plugins for Gedit, reopen-tabs, which restores the tabs that were open when gedit was last closed.

All of the files are in the correct place in ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins, but when I go to edit->preferences->plugins, it doesn't show up as it used to do. I can't think of any reasons why it isn't being detected, but I'm not exactly an expert Linux user, so I imagine I'm being dense. Any input would be really appreciated (even if it's an alternative plugin that does the same thing automatically (ie not session saver)).

Sam, did rawonstack solve your problem? If so, please mark his answer as accepted. Otherwise provide your own solution of more info in your post. Thank you. – Mirzhan Irkegulov Feb 25 '12 at 14:55

Are you sure if you have upgraded to 10.10 and not to 11.10? I assume it is 11.10 as the question is tagged by 11.10. Ubuntu 11.10 has Gedit3 on board and this one requires different plugins, placed into different directory ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/ Please visit for available plugins. The one I think you are interested is here
