Which directory should I copy gedit plugins for gedit to recognize them in? I was browsing around the web, none of proposed folders worked. I want to use ftp code editng gedit plugin.

  • have you tried the system-wide plug-in directory? /usr/share/gedit/plugins – Fabby Dec 16 '14 at 9:17
  • Yes, I have, it does not work – KernelPanic Dec 16 '14 at 9:41
  • Have you tried another plugin? maybe this particular plugin isn't compatible with your version of gedit? – Fabby Dec 16 '14 at 9:56
  • @Fabby, I am trying to install gedit-ftp-browser at code.google.com/p/gedit-ftp-browser. – KernelPanic Dec 17 '14 at 4:41

That is a plugin for gedit 2 and not compatible with gedit 3.

I tried downloading it, putting it in the right (3.0) directory, changing the interpreter from python to python3 and upgrading the version to 3 but it still didn't work...

Therefore, the solution is: contact the developer for a new version.

(Probably not what you wanted to hear, but alas)
