This question already has an answer here:

I have gedit-plugins installed for gedit on my previously broken system. On the new system, I want to restore gedit from my backed up home directory.

I will like to know! Where does gedit store it's configurations including plugins list, preferences etc.

Thanks for helping out.

From my backup, I found the file I need at [backup-tape]/.config/gedit/saved-session.xml, then I re-installed the gedit-plugins package and enabled "Session saver" plugin.
