  • Version: 0.1.0


  1. Download Custom Indent plugin
  2. Check if ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/ directory exists. If not, create the missing directories.
  3. Copy the folder named customindent to ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/
  4. Restart gedit if opened
  5. Activate the plugin under 'Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins'


The plugin manages indentation settings for your gedit. If you want to use this plugin, then you should not set indentation settings from the preferences window, but only with this plugin. To set indentation settings, just open the configuration dialog under Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins -> Custom Indent -> Preferences and select the languages from you which to change the indentation settings. All settings are automatically applied to all documents once set. Finally, the plugin saves all settings to a file named settings.pkl under the plugin directory. For some reason, if the plugin does not initialize because the settings file is corrupted, you should delete it.
