Hi everyone. I used to work on Xubuntu 14 in Kate and i had point "plugins" in settings in "Editor component" where i could manage plugins, such as autobrackets.
Recently i switched to Lubuntu 15.04 and i dont have such option. IHow can i get it? Or at least install autobrackets plugin?

Sorry for my poor english

Kate plugins should be in the Kate .deb package, try reinstalling it

run
Code: Select all
kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental  2> /dev/null

also see if the plugins are available for a new user

I also tried to login as guest and there was no plugins

I'll try to make myself clear. http://i.imgur.com/iSN8RE3.png

those extensions in 4 are suppled by libktexteditor package, I do not have/see a package for 5 could mean it was not ported

you could post a bug or ask status on #kate irc

It has been reimplemented recently:
https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=ktexteditor ... 049a01ef46

So it should be in the next Frameworks release (5.16 in two weeks).
But AIUI, it is built on now, and not a plugin.

Sorry, no idea.
It looks to me that the whole extension interface has been removed though, not just the plugins.

But then, there were only 6, and AFAICT (at least) most things they implemented are available in some form in Kate/Kwrite now anyway.

Are you missing something specific? You should probably file a bug report then.

The plugin has been deprecated

The functionality is back in Kate 15.08.3, KDE Framework 5.16.0

Can be enable via a Checkbox in "Configure Kate", "Editing", "General", "Auto Brackets"

works fine so far, did not encounter any issue with it
