About your initial question abut including sciwrappers.h:
the order of header includes is important, I think I already told
you that in another thread.
First include geany.h, then other Geany includes like document.c or
sciwrappers.h, then include pluginmacros.h and geanyfunctions.h. You
can't include headers randomly. See other plugins how they do it.

All stuff Colomban explained with PLAT_GTK and ScintillaObject
declaration is not true as long as you include geany.h. That does all
the necessary stuff for you. Check this file to get a clue.

And last but not least, since Geany 0.18 it's recommended to *only*
include geanyplugin.h which does everything for you. But obviously you
need Geany 0.18 for this and you need to adjust the required plugin API
version in your plugin accordingly (that is set it to 150).

sci_scroll_columns() is not part of the plugin API. If you can't find a
function in the plugin API docs
(http://www.geany.org/manual/reference/), you can't use it in your
plugin. Either we add the function to the API but then you would
require Geany 0.19 which is not yet released or you simply call the
corresponding Scintilla message directly:

scintilla_send_message(sci, SCI_LINESCROLL, columns, 0)
