I frequently work with text files that do not have an extension or which have a non-standard extension using Gedit (a
.sample file for example, for which the mime type is not understood), and Gedit always defaults to Matlab syntax highlighting.
I'd like to set a default syntax highlighting of 'Plain Text' for these files. Is this possible?
Nano can do this, and a similar question for files with extensions is here. I'm looking for an answer that allows me to set a catch-all style of plain text for all types without an extension or not already found in
/usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/language-specs/as described here
- No local language spec file in
- Output of
file --mime-type -b <myfile>is correct
