I want to use facility of gedit to insert snippets.
The documentation suggests (doc):
Install the plugin. Menu: Tools -> Manage Snippets. A dialog will appear and you can start add snippets. Select a 'Language' (or Global for global snippets). Start adding snippets.
I found the folder /usr/share/gedit-2/plugins/snippets where all snippet xmls are located, but unfortunately was not able neither use snippets nor edit them.
How is it possible to use snippets in gedit? I am using the version 2.30.3.
