Switch to bottom pane plugin for GEdit


So, I’ve been reconsidering GEdit as a quick development environment, but I was really missing a way to switch to the bottom pane and back (for using the embedded terminal).

I couldn’t find an existing plugin to do this, so I took a look at Elia Sarti’s TabSwitch plugin – that uses Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs – and edited it to switch back and forth between the bottom pane and the editor view and I must say that GEdit has a rather comfortable work flow now ๐Ÿ™‚

Plugin is here for Gedit 2 and here for Gedit 3.

    Too bad it’s not compatible with the switch tab plugin…. Any way you would make the shortcut customisable ?

    Thanks a lot!
    I’m using it for programming exercises in haskell to switch between bottom pane terminal and editor window. Works perfect!

    Hi first really nice plugin i like it ๐Ÿ™‚ but just to give some additional info for others. When i ran it it was working as it should but it was giving me an exception about None type when i was switching between tabs. Not a big deal but was pretty annoying feeding my terminal with it. Anyway I changed the line in your if statement to:


    and now it’s fixed for me, do not know if anyone else has the same issue but if so I hope they find that useful ๐Ÿ™‚
