Using Gedit with Embedded Terminal Window

Gedit is a good text editor and it can embed terminal window in it. Here is the instructions how to do this:

sudo apt-get install gedit-plugins
git clone git://
cp gedit-mterminal.git/* ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins


  1. The first command will install the gedit embed terminal window plugin. This is a single window terminal. If you’re expecting a multi-window terminal, do the next steps;

  2. The last 2 commands are installing a multi-window terminal plugin for gedit;

  3. After finishing the step(s), restart your gedit and have a try(press the shotcut keys “Ctrl+F9” to open the terminal window).
