Settings for Gedit:
Go to Edit > Preferences and click the options you want. You can select extra plugins from here too. Those who never used any other Operating System outside Windows, just remember, your checking / unchecking the checkboxes will save the options itself. You need not to click Save or OK (actually there is no such button).
You will love it.
