I am using
Ubuntu 12.04.I want to install
Regex Search and Replace plugin for Gedit.So can some one please tell me where can I
get it and install it.Any help and suggestions will be highly appreciable.
Download Regular Expression Plugin for Gedit 3. Extract the tar package , then copy it to Gedit plugins directory from the Extracted folder.
For a particular user , do
cd ~/Downloads wget 'https://live.gnome.org/Gedit/Plugins?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=regex_replace-gedit3.tar.gz' -o regex_replace-gedit3.tar.gz tar xf regex_replace-gedit3.tar.gz mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins mv ~/Downloads/regex_replace ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins
And for the all the users in system
sudo cp -r ~/Downloads/regex_replace /usr/lib/gedit/plugins/
After copying the plugin you can enable it in Gedit 3 under Edit > Preferences, clicking on Plugins tab and checking the box for Regex Search and Replace.
Another alternate is also available as Advanced Find / Replace
P.S. : Thanks mac9416 for suggesting the individual User part.
The best plugin I have found is
Advanced find / replace plugin for gedit that you can find in http://code.google.com/p/advanced-find/.
About how to install, you can follow the instructions in its wiki page http://code.google.com/p/advanced-find/wiki/Installation.
Basically what you must do is:
Download the correct version for your gedit from http://code.google.com/p/advanced-find/downloads/list.
Run install.sh (without sudo).
Go to preferences / plug-in and activate it.
It have many many features like search in opened files or bookmark a search.
At least for Ubuntu 14.04, there is a regex plugin available from the
gedit-developers-plugins package. If this package doesn't work for you, as it didn't work for me, here is the solution.
