I would like to split the screen in gedit in order to see simultaneously multiple files.

I found this plugin

https://github.com/jonocodes/GeditSplitView

but after moving

SplitView.plugin

SplitView.py

to .local/share/gedit/plugins

and going to edit->preferences->plugins if I try to click on the split view button a no entry sign appears. " 'python' plugin loader was not found"

If I run gedit from the terminal, I receive the following message:

(gedit:17504): libpeas-WARNING **: The 'python' plugin loader has not been enabled

Any suggestion?

I think newer Gedit versions work with Python 3 instead of 2. So you might want to change the loader in SplitView.plugin.

Change line 2 from

Loader=python

to

Loader=python3
