I had gedit configured with some plugins but after upgrading to 13.10, every time I go the gedit Plugins and try to load the external tools I get a message saying: Failed to Load.

Not sure how to fix this. Tried reinstalling but this didn't help


As written here, try installing gir1.2-gtksource-3.0. It worked for me.

sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gtksource-3.0

I installed the package gir1.2-gtksource-3.0, but the External Tools Manager didn't work, I had to change permissions to this directory:

sudo chown <username> /home/<username>/.config/gedit
