Ubuntu – How to activate the Gedit terminal plugin


I have the following packages installed:

  • gedit
  • gedit-common
  • gedit-plugins

In Ubuntu 12.04 with these packages installed all that was needed was to activate the terminal plugin and the press Ctrl+F9 to show the bottom panel. This isn't the case with Ubuntu 13.10 (Gedit 3.8.3) and I can't figure out how to do it.

After you are sure that gedit-plugins is installed, (re)open gedit and navigate to EditPreferences and select Plugins tab. Here you must to tick Embedded Terminal. Then when you will press Ctrl+F9, a terminal will appear in bottom pane:
