This is not the same question as: "Manage external tools" not popping up dialogg where the dialog box doesnโ€™t pop-up after selecting Manage External Tools from the gedit Tools menu.

My problem is the Manage External Tools option doesnโ€™t appear in the Tools menu at all.

Iโ€™ve checked off to use the plug-in within the Preferences sub-menu:

gedit external tools.png

Iโ€™ve even quit and reloaded gedit after enabling the plug-in.

My current version is:

$ gedit --version
gedit - Version 3.18.3

Does anyone know why the Manage External Tools option isnโ€™t appearing?


Results of namei:

$ namei -l ~/.config/gedit/tools
f: /home/rick/.config/gedit/tools
drwxr-xr-x root root /
drwxr-xr-x root root home
drwxr-xr-x rick rick rick
drwx------ rick rick .config
drwxr-xr-x root root gedit
                     tools - No such file or directory

Based on steeldriverโ€™s comment I ran:

sudo chown -cR rick:rick /home/rick

and all is well now.
