There were no syntax highlighting for the programming language JR in gedit, so I wrote one myself.
This will work for Ubuntu 9.10, but it may work for others as well.
How to install:
1. Download jr.lang.
2. Place it in either
3. Download jr.xml.
4. Place it in (create it if it doesn’t exist yet)
5. Update the mine database:
cd ~/.local/share update-mime-database mime
All done! You should now get JR syntax highlighting when opening .jr files in gedit.
Note: The directory paths are based on an Ubuntu system and might be different for other distributions.
Alternatively, you can just run this script to install it automatically:
wget -O jr.lang http://files.kerola.nu/?file=gedit_jr_syntax_hl/jr.lang wget -O jr.xml http://files.kerola.nu/?file=gedit_jr_syntax_hl/jr.xml mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs mv jr.lang ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs/ mkdir -p ~/.local/share/mime/packages mv jr.xml ~/.local/share/mime/packages/ update-mime-database ~/.local/share/mime
