I am new to CTags, and I tried it out for the first time a while back. It worked fine in Kate, I was able to use the keyboard shortcuts to jump to function definitions.
Now I'm trying it out again on the same system. I've opened up a new project, I've run
ctags and it's created the
tags file in the project root directory. I've confirmed it works in vim and I can jump between definitions as expected.
When I open Kate, I add the tags file (
/home/jeff/project/tags) to the index targets, and click Update Index but now when I try to goto definition, it's always:
No hits found
I've also tried updating the database, and it's created a
session_db_ with today's date.
I also tried creating the
.kateproject file as proposed by an answer to this question, which is something I didn't have to do last time it worked anyway.
