jEdit + RVM + console
Submitted by Tuesday, 7 December, 2010 - 22:10
In my long journey trying to find a comfortable IDE for Ruby on Rails on
Ubuntu, I found this tutorial to set up jedit :
It looks fine for the moment but I have one slight problem with the
console plugin : it can't find RVM. Consequently it can't find any rails
version and I can't run any ruby scripts or rake commands. RVM works
properly in a usual terminal of course.
rvm -v doesn't work (unknown) but anything else like firefox -v does. So
I guess the console plugin simply doesn't load RVM when it starts.
I posted on two rails forums and couldn't find any answer at the moment. Could anyone help me fix this ?

creating a user language dictionary in jEdit
Submitted by Tuesday, 23 November, 2010 - 10:43
I have been in search of a text editor for work on a desktop running MS-Win-XP and a notebook running Linux Ubuntu.
Having installed jEdit on the XP system I am impressed with the functionality.
I am building a translation model to translate my English texts into German and need the ability to run my dictionary on the jEdit platform. The dictionary is based on a csv file structure.
Can anyone recommend me a way to get a dictionary running with jEdit?
I would like to make use of the create text tags function on jEdit.
I would then use the same tags with the dictionary entries.
Would BeanShell be a way?
What would, for a non-programmer, be the best way to create a simple dictionary look-up script?
For any good ideas I would be very grateful.
Thanks and regards, pat4kin.
Menu Editor with Separators
Submitted by Thursday, 18 November, 2010 - 22:45
I really like the Menu Editor plugin and added some new menus, e.g. XML
I put some actions into the new XML menu and now I would like to put in some separators. I didn't find something about separators in the help-menu and now I don't see why the "Separator" Button doesn't work for me (jEdit 4.3.1 on Ubuntu 8.04)
(in the SourceForge/ bugs & patches list I also didn't find anything about this problem)
Can somebody give me hint how I can add separators using the plugin or manually in a props file?
Does Jedit garble any HTML files?
Submitted by Wednesday, 3 November, 2010 - 08:23
I have Jedit with the Plugin Includes Parser for HTML pages and as a german citizen, I do use a lot of Umlaute (special characters) in the Include. The Head of the HTML file does show the entry that the endoding is utf dash eight (I can not include the sample code, because I already did write my question with the code mentioned and this board deleted it due to suspicious characters).
After inserting the Include Code into the main HTML page by the Includes Pager, all the Umlaute are shown totally garbled.
Is it correct that the Includes Parser does change the encoding into whatever else, but does not insert the special characters in the correct encoding? In utilities, Global Options, encodings the default character encoding is set to utf dash eight.
Is there any work-around? Normally, I do not bother to find a solution for faulty software, but I seem not to be able to find any other editor with includes capabilities working under Linux.
I tried to find a mode whereby Jedit would change the special characters into HTML entities on-the-fly during entering, as is possible for example with dreamweaver, but until now I did not find anything.
If there is a work-around or any solution I would be grateful for any hint!

Search and Replace popup hides search results
Submitted by Thursday, 21 October, 2010 - 01:13
The search and replace popup menu often hides search results as it seems to always be on top of the jEdit screen showing the current buffer. Especially on a netbook 1024x600 px screen! The incremental search bar (C+,) solves this problem nicely for simple searches. However the search bar doesn't seem to handle all the function available in the search and replace popup, especial replace.
I tried to dock the full search and replace popup to keep it out of the way, but couldn't find it in Global Options > Docking. I'm running jEdit 4.3.2 on Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 10.04. I don't see the docking button on any of the popup screens, including the file system viewer which is dockable. Perhaps the lack of docking button on Ubuntu is a Gnome windowing issue? Maybe there is already an option to scroll lines with results out from behind the search and replace popup?
Is this is a bug, a new feature or am I just missing something?

Is there an option for Python or Ruby to get script output in Jedit. Similar to run module command in python IDLE or in Scite Go option.

How do you change the font displayed by the jedit editor? I have always used Frankin Gothic Medium Condensed as it is an easy font to read and does not take up too much space
Is ther any way of altering the font used for displaying code in the editor, either directly or acessing a configuration file?

RecentBufferSwitcher With SuperAbbrevs
Submitted by Wednesday, 29 September, 2010 - 12:34
Hi, I've been using the RecentBufferSwitcher plugin for some time and have it bound to Ctrl + Tab. I've recently discovered the SuperAbbrevs plugin and want to use it alongside RBS, however it seems that with RBS enabled Tab doesn't trigger SuperAbbrevs.
Is there an alternative to RBS (that can work in exactly the same way) that doesn't hog the key it's assigned to?
Could RBS be modified to allow it to work with SuperAbbrevs? What would I need to make it do that it's not doing at the moment?
Failing that, I was thinking of configuring / modifying SuperAbbrevs to use the Space key instead of Tab for its trigger - much like the normal built-in abbreviations which I've got used to.
Are any of these work-arounds available already?
Thanks in advance,

Dual diff on two screens / displays / views
Submitted by Thursday, 9 September, 2010 - 09:17
dual diff splits the current view, but if you have to physical displays it would be better to use both.
It would be nice, if you could use two views, so you'd compare a buffer in one view on one display with a second view on the second display.
Or is that already possible and I did not find it? I could open a second view and move it to the second display, but diff would still use only one view.

Hex - Convert to binary
Submitted by Thursday, 12 August, 2010 - 11:45
anybody knows a plugin, that allows to save a hexdump as binary file?
e.g. if you have a hex dump in an editor like
43 4F 52 42 41 2F 55 4E 4B 4E 4F 57 4E 3A 31 2E | CORBA/UNKNOWN:1.
one would select the hex part with a rectangular selection, then -save hex selection to file. The file would then contain the binary values.
If there is no such plugin, where and how would one start to implement this?
Submitted by Thursday, 29 July, 2010 - 10:37
Is it possible to have projects (the actual project file could be on the local machine) where the files added to it are on remote files? Right now, with the FTP plugin, it allows me to add files from remote locations to a project, but does not save the information. So when I restart Jedit, the remote files no longer show up against the project. However, the files on the local machine added to the project shows up after the restart.
Ami I doing something wrong, or is this a limitation currently? Are there any plans for having this feature, as I think it is quite a useful one to have.
Cannot add or edit filter strings in File Browser
Submitted by Tuesday, 27 July, 2010 - 06:20
I have just installed jEdit on Mac OS X 10.6.4 (Snow Leopard),
All the settings I like are now made and saved and restored OK.
A lot of keystrokes have been re-customized, but it all works.
I always filter groups of files to avoid opening the wrong
type of file.
So when I go to enter a new group of filter characters into
the File Browser (using Ctrl+O), I cannot enter any character,
not can I change an existing filter group that I managed to add
before (but don't know how).
A typical group of filters is:
...and I like to extend the group now and again.
There is NO problem in entering characters of any kind within
the editor itself - only into the "Filter" edit box in the
I have reset the machine in case this was a serious Java
problem, but no use.
Can anyone help?
Text selection - highlight only selected text
Submitted by Thursday, 22 July, 2010 - 22:30
When selecting across multiple lines, jEdit has the curious behavior of highlighting the entire region from left to right - well past the last character - instead of highlighting just the selected text. I would like the selection highlights to be a visual indicator of what is actually selected (including any whitespace at the end of the line). Is there any way to alter this behavior? I'm willing to write a plugin to take care of this if there's a way to override selection paint methods in the API (I looked, and couldn't find anything).
Any input would be appreciated.
