gedit plugins not loading

Postby jaskah » 2013-09-01 19:35

hello

i'm trying to use the supercollider-gedit plugin in gedit but get the following error message:

The plugin 'SuperCollider could not be loaded.
An error occurred: Plugin loader 'python' could not be found.

i'm using linux testing (jessie) and gedit 3.8.3-3

any help greatly appreciated!

yes, python3 (these plugins were working until a recent python update, in fact).

Then maybe the python path changed with that update and you'll have to manual edit the plugin.

this is the body of the plugin:

[Plugin]
Loader=python
Module=supercollider
IAge=3
Name=SuperCollider
Description=SuperCollider interaction plugin for gedit.

i tried changing the loader call to
Loader=python3

but didn't help.

any other suggestions?

Write the full path to python.

Run first "whereis python" to see where it is (probably /usr/bin/python) and the write the full path on Loader=

i did this, but it didn't work.

in the end, i managed to get in contact with one of the programmers for this plug-in. he changed the code for compatibility with python3. this now works for me.
