gedit external tools???

Post by denijane » Mon Jul 22, 2013 16:12

Hi, yesterday, I needed to use gedit as an IDE for something and I tried to turn on its External Tools. However, there's no External Tools on my Plugins menu. I have gedit 3.8.3, also the gedit-plugins. The External Tools options has to be there. But it is not. And I have no idea why. I even tried to install a third-party plugin, just to see if it works all right, it doesn't. When I try to enable it, I get first a "red stop sign" and then, it is greyed out.
I don't understand what's the problem and I spent the whole day digging on it. The gedit website says the External Tools plugin is shipped by default, yet, I don't have it. Any ideas?
I have gedit 2x on my netbook and the External Tools work fine and also the IDE option.
