Using gedit 3, I've tried multiple plugins to highlight all instances of the current selection (a la Notepad++):
The smart-highlighting will seem to install and let me activate it, but doesn't seem to actually do anything.
The one at github was written for v2. To try to hack it into v3, I've tried:
That one still won't load (doesn't appear in
prefs->plugins list). Doesn't throw an error, just doesn't load. I also can't find the gedit logs anywhere to see if there's a helpful message (I'm relatively new to Linux). I checked
/var/logs/ but there's no gedit.
Can anyone help? I just want the auto-highlighting to work.
