I recently upgraded to 13.10, and my R plugin for gedit is no longer working.

When I go to gedit->preferences->plugins and try to enable "R integration", I have little red error symbol and a message that says "An error occured: plugin loader "python" was not found"

The contents of the RCtrl.plugin file at user/lib/gedit/plugins is as follows:

Name=R integration
Description=Allows R to be controlled from Gedit
Authors=Dan Dediu <ddediu@gmail.com>
Copyright=Copyright © 2009-2011 Dan Dediu <ddediu@gmail.com>

I did whereis python and then changed the loader=python line to read Loader=path/to/python3.3, which is what I found.

I don't know what to do at this point; would appreciate help.

EDIT: I have also tried downloading the tar.bz2 file from the developer's webpage and extracting it into the plugins folder. still doesn't work!


Problem solved by uninstalling the existing plugin using apt-get or Software Center and then installing the plugin from http://sourceforge.net/projects/rgedit/files/rgedit- into ~/.local/share/gedit. Basically just download the archive, extract, and copy thie files into the plugin directory from the archive directory.
