I am using ubuntu mate 18.04 and I installed gedit in it alongside pluma (mate default text editor) so I can manage my text notes with gedit. I was also using this setup in ubuntu 16.04, ubuntu mate 16.04 and even in ubuntu mate 18.04 and it works really great. A few days ago I reinstalled my ubuntu mate, install gedit and some necessary plugins and now gedit is crashing in almost in all sessions. I used gedit to manage all my notes and journal entries but this problem is making it impossible. I removed and install gedit multiple time, check with and without plugins but nothing is working. Can anyone help?
update: when I launch this program in the terminal, it crashes after some time with the following error.
(gedit:26250): Gdk-ERROR **: 01:25:37.372: The program 'gedit' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'. (Details: serial 2911131 error_code 16 request_code 18 (core protocol) minor_code 0) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.) Trace/breakpoint trap
