Installing GEdit function browser plugin in Ubuntu


I am not sure if this is the correct place to have this, so if it isn't tell me and I'll post some where else.

I have downloaded the function browser plugin for gedit and am not sure how to install it. I have followed several online tutorials, but have gotten no where with them. I was hoping some one here could help me out.

To install the plugins, extract the files to ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/ and restart gedit, then activate the plugin in the preferences dialog.

Code:
$ cd ~/.gnome2


~/ takes you to the home directory, .gnome2/ is the directory in the home directory.

Configuaration files are usually in hidden folders in your home directory, so you could also perform a search:

Code:
$ cd
takes you to your home directory
Code:
$ find . -name ".gnome2"
this will look for the directory recursively starting at "." which is your current working directory (where you are at now) for the -name (self explanatory) ".gnome2".
Look at "find" and "locate" howto's some time. Those are pretty useful. I see there is no "plugins" directory in my gedit folder, you might have to create it.
