gEdit and smooth FTP saving!

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

    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.

    TRiG.
