Gedit 2.2.0 tools menu gone! (Kde, Rh9)


Hi All!

As the subject line says, the Tools menu in my Gedit 2.2.0 has gone! That is to say, "Tools" still appears in the menu bar but when I click on it, I see menu...

Is there perhaps a way to reinstall this using rpm?

Any advice would be welcome!

Rob

Reinstalling gedit might solve the problem.

rpm -e gedit

rpm -i /pathname/gedit-packagename

Well I figured out how to get the latest rpm for gedit from the RedHat site, uninstalled and reinstalled.. but the tools menu has still not re-appeared...

Any further ideas would be most appreciated!

"but the tools menu has still not re-appeared... "

Another possible solution is to edit /home/user/.gnome/gedit and set:
toolbar=1

Probably, but i don't know how to do that. You already tried reinstalling gedit and that did not work. Next I would try reinstalling gnome. (Actually, the first thing I would do is look through my backup to see if I could find the file there).

Can anyone help a man without a backup?

If you can post your
/home/user/.gnome/gedit
file here for me I would be most grateful!

hmm, similar just happened to me, im running debian , but just updated a lot of gnome stuff.
gedit was compiled myself a while back, so id say its gnome thats the problem ( or has changed again ) and not necessarily gedit.

Frankly im becoming less and less impressed with gnome, the gui looks much better and refined but thats about all i can say for it unfortunately . It seems that with each release its become more and more lobotimised compared to the old gnome
ie its becoming a block of concrete environment. I dont like the way the options work ( what options there are, when you find them ), not to mention the swag of programs that start when you run an app.
And where's the menu editor , the preview theme option ? etc
Also panel behaviour and options have changed again...

Glad ive never been i heavy gnome user, enlightenment works fine for me, gnome has lost the plot in my view .


By the way, I just purged all gnome, and gconf data from ~, and the tools problem persisted

Hi guys!

i have the same problem in debian sid - gedit 2.4.1.
I tried to completely purge gedit (mean apt-get remove --purge gedit, then rm *gedit* in ~ and /etc, then search text files that content 'gedit'!!!)
Then in reinstalled gedit.
You know what? It didn't work...
I use XFce instead of Gnome, but i have no complaining about missing stuffs.
Solution --> use another editor...
