Bug Description

Gedit 3.22 crashes upon launch whenever gedit-latex-plugin AND (the Snippets plugin OR External tools) are enabled.

Gedit works fine with onlt the latex plugin OR the snippet plugin enabled.

Steps to reproduce :

Open gedit
go to edit-preferences-plugins
uncheck all plugins
check only the snippets plugin
close gedit
install gedit-latex-plugin
open gedit
go to edit-preferences-plugins
check Latex plugin in addition to the Snippet plugin
close gedit
when attempting to open gedit again, it should segfault

To be able to launch gedit again uninstall gedit-latex-plugin

This is an unsupported release now. Please think to install the next LTS 'Bionic 18.04'

Marking as Invalid because the release is EOL is not correct. Marking as Incomplete. Also, 18.04 is (at the time of writing) still in development, and you should expect some breakage.

Reporter, is this still present on 17.10 or 16.04?
