 I am not aware of an RPM package of gdp. You could try alien to convert a deb to RPM. I believe you are using GNOME 2.32 which is paired with version 0.4.6 and 0.4.7. The former is available as a deb that might be convertible.

Or you can build from source <>. You will need to install gnome development libraries, and specifically gedit's and gtksourceview's dev package which will provide the needed headers.

unpack the tarball and from the terminal
cd path/to/unpacked/tarball
make install

Thank you for the quick response. I installed alien and did successfully install your gedit plugins. All working thanks.
