I am under Ubuntu 20.04.02, using Gnome 3.36.8.
gedit (version 3.36.2) does not have a toolbar.
As per this (from 2016): 1) that is part of "the new look" of gedit (see also this), 2) that has been asked before, 3) there is a workaround via a ppa that "tricks" into downgrading gedit, 4) for those who don't want to "downgrade", a fork of gedit named
pluma is suggested.
As of today (2021), is there any way to get the toolbar in gedit?
I found no dconf setting for that in
