I prove to install this plugin following the instructions of this post: HTML pair tag highlight alternative for Geany editor on Ubuntu 14.04

but, when I write

sed -i 's/1.24/1.23/' wscript

it says me this:

fatal: destination path 'geany-plugins' already exists and is not an empty directory.

What can I do?

after

./waf configure --enable-plugins=pairtaghighlighter

it appears me this:

Setting top to                           : /tmp/geany-plugins 
Setting out to                           : /tmp/geany-plugins/_build_ 
Checking for waf version in 1.6.1-1.7.0  : ok 
Checking for 'gcc' (c compiler)          : /usr/bin/gcc

The configuration failed

    List all steps that you're gone. Somewhere is a mistake. – A.B. Apr 30 '15 at 13:08

    Not necessary. Problem solved, see my answer – A.B. Apr 30 '15 at 13:23

  1. This has nothing to do with the sed -i 's/1.24/1.23/' wscript.

    This is an error message from Git. You start the command git clone https://github.com/geany/geany-plugins.git several times. Then Git complains.

    Example:

    $ git clone https://github.com/geany/geany-plugins.git
    
    Cloning into 'geany-plugins'...
    remote: Counting objects: 15302, done.
    remote: Compressing objects: 100% (15/15), done.
    remote: Total 15302 (delta 1), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 15287
    Receiving objects: 100% (15302/15302), 14.59 MiB | 1.17 MiB/s, done.
    Resolving deltas: 100% (8708/8708), done.
    Checking connectivity... done.
    
    $ git clone https://github.com/geany/geany-plugins.git
    
    fatal: destination path 'geany-plugins' already exists and is not an empty directory.
    
  2. Install the gtk2 development library:

    sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
    

    and again:

    ./waf configure --enable-plugins=pairtaghighlighter

  • Wait, so I have to write "sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev" and then... – Xalsar Apr 30 '15 at 13:59
  • ./waf configure --enable-plugins=pairtaghighlighter – A.B. Apr 30 '15 at 14:02
  • It says me : "bash: ./waf: The folder doesn’t exist" – Xalsar Apr 30 '15 at 14:05
