View Full Version : Using gedit external tools for building project

September 6th, 2012, 01:50 AM

I am using gedit as a light and fast IDE for c/c++ and it works great, however when using the Build function it has under external tools it doesn't seem to use the Makfile in parent directory.

For example:

If I build from file.c it finds folder1/Makefile and executes that, when it should find /Makefile instead..

Is there anyone who has a script that finds the correct parent directory, or maybe a plugin where you can set the parent directory?

I have never been good at scripting, and new to c/c++ so that's why I ask.

If I've posted in the wrong section I apologize :oops:

I had no idea that gedit had such options!
Consider looking into the gedit config file,
(or something like that)

--side note: geany... light and fast, and I use it as my text editor.
