I've installed GEdit, but I find it quite unusable for programming purposes, which plugins are useful for such thing? (e.g.: to enable auto indentation, auto completion, ...)

One of the thins I'm missing is having the line number in a column in the left side, is that possible with GEdit?

Thank you very much.


You can install an additional bundle of plugins by running this:

sudo apt-get install gedit-plugins

The most convienient one that adds is the Snippets plugin.


You can have the lines in the left side by navigating to Edit -> Preferences and checking off Display Line Numbers. Additional plugins can be grabbed here and configured under Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins Tab.

You can grab Auto Indent here and Auto Complete here.

Here's a shot of preferences for reference:

Gedit Symbols Browser plugin is a must as well:
