What is this?

Crypto is a simple plugin for the Gedit ( ) editor, allowing you to quickly encrypt/decrypt text documents.

Once installed and activated (through the “Preferences” window, “Plugin” tab), it will add a submenu to the “File” menu, with two options allowing you to encrypt or decrypt the currently open document.

Notice that to encrypt/decrypt, you should already have set up your key using gpg or seahorse.

How to install?

To install for a single user:

cd gedit-plugin-crypto-*
ln -s crypto.plugin ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/crypto.plugin
ln -s crypto ~/.local/share/gedit/plugins/crypto

To install systemwise (as root):

cd gedit-plugin-crypto-*
ln -s crypto.plugin /usr/lib/gedit/plugins/crypto.plugin
ln -s crypto /usr/lib/gedit/plugins/crypto

Who should I blame if this sucks?

Pietro Battiston -


This plugin relies on the Seahorse ( ) dbus service, which does the real work.


Gedit version 3 or later and Seahorse must be installed for the plugin to work.

In particular, current versions need gedit 3.8 or later; if instead you're using a previous version of gedit, download version 0.2 of gedit-crypto.
