GEdit Character Map Plugin Is Broken
Open, LowPublic


When attempting to enable the Character Map plugin within GEdit, a warning icon appears, and the extension fails to get enabled.

And for the maintainers, I am trying to reign myself in, so starting from this install, I am going to remain on Shannon, rather than switch over immediately to Unstable.

It appears that gucharmap needs to be installed for the plugin to work-properly.

We either need to have 'gucharmap' listed as a dependency for 'gedit-plugins' or spin off the character map plugin into it's own package, with 'gucharmap' as a dependency.
