Gedit is confused

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – On several distros, after a while, gedit, when saving a file, will not allow it and says because it is a read-only partition. This is not true, I have checked, been able to download files to said partition, and edit files on said partition with other programs such as Libreoffice. So, why is gedit confused, and is there a way to reset gedit to it's default settings? (HowTos)
