A friend of the page was having some troubles at installing gedit plugings.

I will now show with an example how to do it.

First thing, of course you need gedit installed on your system.

Then download the plugin, in this case I will use for this example the smart highlight plugin.

It can be downloaded from: Google code

Once downloaded unpack it and then create this directory if it does not exists yet.

~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/

you can do it with:

mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/

Then copy the [something].gedit-plugin in that directory, in this case, it is the file.

smart_highlight.gedit-plugin

and finally the folder with the rest of files also to the same folder. In this case, the folder smart_highlight to the ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/

All you need to do now is:

Open gedit, and enable the plugin like in this image:

Finally restart gedit, and you are done.

Finally, if you want your plugin system available, instead of installing it in ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/ do it in /usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/

provided that you have root access.

As this is only to show how to install any plugin, I did not use the install.sh that comes with this plugin, and others may not offer, but that is of course the best way to proceed.
