Hey Karl,

I'm very excited about jEdit, it has some amazing plug-ins. I'm not
sure how you installed jedit, but this is what I did (to make sure we
are sort of doing the same thing):

1. Downloaded the java installer for the stable release:
2. Installed using "sudo java -jar jedit42install.jar"
3. Create a customer application launcher, with the command "jedit"

When "jedit" from the command line it launches correctly. I am not
sure what you mean by the panel, is it possible to provide a
When I run "jedit testing" it launches with a empty, new file named "testing".

One thing I could think of that would cause you problems if you do not
have java installed. On red hat enterprise linux I needed the
java-1.5.0-sun package to be installed.

If you can provide more details/screenshot I am sure someone will be
able to help. Once you get going, I suggest you install the XInsert,
XML, ErrorList, BufferList, SpellCheck, SideKick, and Console plugins
(Go to Plugins- > PluginManager, select the install tab, and tick the
ones you want. Make sure you are connected to the internet at this
point...). To arrange these on your screen: Utilities -> Global
Options. Select docking, then use the drop down list to select where
you want each plug-in. Alternatively you can access them through the
Plugins menu item.

Let me know if you need any extra help, also posting the output of
"rpm -qa | grep java" would be handy...

Kind Regards,
