Gedit sources are just where sources=() say they are: also, 2.30.4 is the last version that supports gtk2, which is what this package builds.

Can't build

Thank You. Огромное спасибо.

Great still works, thanks @ondoho, @lf88, @svg1234. For more plugins (draw space, color picker..) go Linux Mint Quina Packages page ( ) and download gedit-plugins. Extract .deb archive after copy files your system

ondoho commented on 2014-03-30 10:05 (UTC)

this still works. i hope it will continue to do so. iirc, i had to install gconf-gtk2 first to avoid gtk3 stuff being pulled in. follow both lf88's and svg1234's additions to the dot. i also hacked the source thus:

lf88 commented on 2012-07-18 19:31 (UTC)

To get it compiling I had to add: export LIBS="-lgmodule-2.0" just before the ./configure line in the PKGBUILD. The workaround posted by svg1234 is still needed.

Thanks svg1234, your workaround about this libICE error was very helpful to me.

svg1234 commented on 2012-03-19 10:49 (UTC)

If you get the dreaded DSO libICE error, just create a ~/.makepkg.conf file and append "-lICE" to your DFLAGS. I use LDFLAGS="-lICE -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,--hash-style=gnu". There are other ways to accomplish the same thing, but this'll do. Rename the .conf to disable it when not required.

all versions after 2.30.4 base on gtk3. please, don't mark this package as "out-of-date"

TuxLyn commented on 2012-03-10 12:52 (UTC)

There is version 2.31.6 > Please update it =)

mephistopheles commented on 2012-03-07 00:49 (UTC)

This bug fixed in gtk3 newer version. This is last version with gtk2. Excuse me.

doesn't work for this time: /usr/bin/ld: ./.libs/libgedit.a(eggsmclient-xsmp.o): undefined reference to symbol 'IceConnectionNumber' /usr/bin/ld: note: 'IceConnectionNumber' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line /usr/lib/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I haven't used this package for ages. I'm disowning it, in case someone wants to pick this is. This *will* die eventually, since it's unsupported, but feel free to use it while it works (which will probably be a looong while).

tea commented on 2011-08-23 11:56 (UTC)

This could make use of MATE to fix the GTK3 dependency.

whynothugo commented on 2011-08-02 12:07 (UTC)

Well... a gconf-2 aur package would be needed, and make this package depend on that instead of gconf, plus, make sure they can both co-exist. If you're up for it, I'll change the depends. I'm not sure there's any way around this either. I didn't notice this since I've already gotten gtk3 pushed down my throat by several other apps upgrading to it.

commented on 2011-08-02 11:41 (UTC)

This depends on gconf, which depends on gtk3 now. Something needs to be tweaked.

whynothugo commented on 2011-06-06 23:08 (UTC)

Added '--enable-python'... looking through the '.configure' script, I found out that an "export PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2" will force it to use python2. python2 is now added to the dependencies. Python plugins are now working again :-)

barbuk commented on 2011-06-06 07:29 (UTC)

You should add '--enable-python' in the configure part of your pkgbuild if you want python-support. Gedit2 use python2, so make sure your your /usr/bin/python is linked to python2.7. Maybe there is a way to tell the configure script to use python2 ?

whynothugo commented on 2011-05-27 22:45 (UTC)

I though I had, maybe I deleted that accidentally at some point. Added PROVIDES and CONFLICTS. Note gedit2 plugins written in python don't seem to be working for some reason yet.

dcelasun commented on 2011-05-27 21:55 (UTC)

You should add provides=('gedit') to the PKGBUILD.
