In Ubuntu 16.04, I could open Gedit and go Preferences -> Plugins and then check the box for the Text-Size plugin, but that Plugin no longer appears in the list for the version that runs in Ubuntu 18.04. Please advise.

  • What is the goal? Want to change the font size in editor? – cmak.fr Feb 18 at 13:21
  • @cmak.fr yes, using the mouse scroll – Lost Crotchet Feb 18 at 13:22

The gedit plugins should be installed

Find available plugins:

apt-cache search gedit-plugin-*

Install the text-size plugin:

sudo apt install gedit-plugin-text-size
