gEdit and smooth FTP saving!

Filed under: LiveCD,Ubuntu — burner @ 11:04 pm  

I just found out that there is a setting in gconf-editor that allows you to use gedit to save to ftp sites with ease. By default, if you peruse an ftp site with nautilus and open a text file on that ftp site, you can’t just click file and save to save the remote file. This was such a pain and what kept me using kate. My troubles end today.

alt+f2, gconf-editor

browse to:

/apps/gedit-2/preferences/editor/save/writable_vfs_schemes

add “ftp” to the list

[…] But if you’re an Ubuntu user (and you wouldn’t be reading this blog if you weren’t), there’s another way. You can set up gEdit to save to FTP site. Derek Buranen explains how in this blog post. […]

I wonder why this isn’t enabled by default? Maybe something to bring up at the next developer summit.

This seems to be working already in my version of gEdit. I’m using v2.24.2 on ubuntu. Thanks for the tip anyway.

This seems to be turned on by default in the version of gEdit which comes with Ubuntu 9.10. I had to set it up myself on gEdit in Ubuntu 8.10.
