Installation Assistance for gedit-3.12.2


Hello,

I am new to linux and I am running Elementary OS. I am trying to install gedit version 3.12.2 which is packaged in a tar.xz file to use for starting to learn to code. It is the program the guide I found recommended. Every time I cd to the extracted folder of gedit and than run ./configure --disable spell it starts doing things in the terminal, but every time at the end I get this message and it does not let me continue with the make and make install commands to properly install it. Could someone please tell me how to fix these and if there is a better program I could use for programming. I am learning python first.

Code:
configure: error: Package requirements (
	libxml-2.0 >= 2.5.0
	glib-2.0 >= 2.39.5
	gio-2.0 >= 2.37.0
	gmodule-2.0
	gtk+-3.0 >= 3.11.6
	gtksourceview-3.0 >= 3.11.2
	libpeas-1.0 >= 1.7.0
	libpeas-gtk-1.0 >= 1.7.0
	gsettings-desktop-schemas
) were not met:

No package 'libxml-2.0' found
Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.39.5' but version of GLib is 2.32.4
Requested 'gio-2.0 >= 2.37.0' but version of GIO is 2.32.4
Requested 'gtk+-3.0 >= 3.11.6' but version of GTK+ is 3.4.2
No package 'gtksourceview-3.0' found
No package 'libpeas-1.0' found
No package 'libpeas-gtk-1.0' found
No package 'gsettings-desktop-schemas' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GEDIT_CFLAGS
and GEDIT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

You need to install the development files for the missing packages and you need to install the correct minimum version. The output is pretty self explanatory regarding what is missing. However, it might be easier for you to simply install gedit using the package manager in Elementary. Looks pretty easy to me --> http://elementaryos.org/docs/user-guide/installing-apps

The program is not in the software center and how would I go about downloading the necessary packages?

IIRC, Elementary is derived from Ubuntu. Looks like this might help you enable and use the Ubuntu repositories. I'd be really surprised if Gedit wasn't in the Ubuntu repositories.

The article did not help. Gedit is not in the software center to install from there. I need to manually install it from the terminal.

I found Gedit in the software center now. It is under a different name. Thank you all for the assistance.
