Where do I find GEDIT? [SOLVED]
« on: March 05, 2016, 09:53:14 am »
I am using Mint 17.3 Rosa and want to use GEDIT. I have checked in the Software Manager and it says that it is installed but where do I find it? I have searched in all the likely places but I cant get it - nowhere to be found! Any ideas, please?

Or, open a Terminal and input: gedit

To find the path to the executable use the command: which gedit

I'm not sure 100% sure Mint uses gedit as its default text editor any more, they may have changed to pluma or xedit .. you should be able to find out what text editor they're using by default by looking for "Text Editor" in your menus, then clicking "Help > About"

If when you run:
Code: [Select]
gedit
in a terminal it doesn't open .. install it with:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gedit
