Thread: Gedit Preferences

  1. #1

    Default Gedit Preferences

    Hi,

    At the bottom of gedit, it allows me to change tab-width but I am trying to:

    1) insert spaces instead of tabs
    2) to turn on automatic indentations
    3) Display line numbers

    In fact, I am trying to open preferences and go to the Editor tab in gedit but the interface I have doesn't seem to have this. Do I need to install some additional programs?

    TIA

    Apologies,

    Code:
    by79@linux-3ztp:~> gedit
    
    
    (gedit:3060): Gtk-WARNING **: Allocating size to GtkOverlay 0x25c3140 without calling gtk_widget_get_preferred_width/height(). How does the code know the size to allocate?
    Is the above normal?

    Hi
    When you open Gedit, in the top bar you can see 'Text Editor' click
    here to select the preferences (It's the standard for Gnome the menus
    are now here for applications).

    1 and 2 are on the Editor tab, 3 is on the View tab.
