Hi everyone,

I have been using Geany for quite some years now and really happy with it.
This times I am learning Python3 and, of course, use Geany for that purpose.

The way Geany autocomplete symbols does not completly fill my needs and I
wanted to try geany-jedi-complete plugin [0] but install fails with the
following output :

g++ -c src/preferences.cpp -O2 -fPIC `pkg-config --cflags geany` -std=c++0x -I./geany-complete-core/include -o lib/src/preferences.o

make: *** [lib/src/preferences.o] Error 1

OS : GNU/Linux openSUSE Leap 42.3
Geany : 1.29 (Gtk 3.20)
Package geany-devel is installed as well as other plugin build-time

Does anyone have an idea about how I can solve it ?

Beside that, if some other experimented Python developpers using Geany has
any advice on how I can configure it specifically for Python I would take it
:) (I have already set build options).

Thank you in advance.
