[Geany-Users] can't run local build on RHEL6

Not having been provided with a proper editor by the IT folks, I tried to
do a local build and install of Geany. I didn't do any funny stuff, just
unpacked the source tarball and ran

./configure --prefix=$HOME/bin/geany
make
make check
make install

All seemed well, but when I try to run Geany for real, I get the output
below.

Can anyone make sense of what is going on, and what to do about it?

Thanks in advance

Rob

[Geany-Users] Left Margin and Alternating Line Backgrounds

Dear Geany Users,

I have only recently rubbed the magic lamp, so please excuse my naivety; I have two questions:

1. Is there a setting or plugin that permits line backgrounds to alternate in shading?

2. Is there a way to add a left margin / a small space between the beginning of the lines and the folding and number margins?

Many thanks,
Matan

[Geany-Users] JSON formatter in Geany


Hi all,

First, thanks for a terrific editor.

Is there a way to pretty format json files?  Right now such files are 1 
wrapped line, pretty impossible to inspect meaningfully.  It would 
just[*] be a matter of slapping some \n after a , and indenting based on 
brace/bracket match level.  I think.

As for colorization, the wiki on json has been duly noted, but it 
doesn't really help much as the string key isn't differentiated from the 
string value in the key/value pair.  Perhaps a json key could be a 
string followed by a : as a new definition.  This isn't as important as 
wrapping anyway.

Amazingly, there is really a dearth of linux editors that (I've found) 
is able to format json.  (Web based is out, eclipse with a plugin can do 
it but that's no way to go for casual file inspection, command line 
isn't it either).

Thanks.

[Geany-Users] Boothes at upcoming FLOSS events

Hi folks,

Upcoming weekend  (23th/24th August) there will be a booth on
German FrOScon in Sankt Augustin/Bonn¹ -- real nice German FLOSS
developer conference. This booth will be togehter with folks of Xfce
and mostly done by Enrico. So If you are around Cologne upcoming
weekend, pass by at Sankt Augustin and maye say »hi«.

I just want to let you know that Geany will have a booth at Prague
Linux² Days by start of October. The event is happing at weekend 5-6th
October in Prague. So Czech, Slovak and all people around: You are
welcome to join or visit us there and meet Enrico, Jiri and me ;) The
booth will again be together with our (German) friends of Xfce.

Cheers,
Frank

[Geany-Users] Were is Code Folding in Preferences?

I'm sorry I must be missing it. Geany 1.22 on Debian and I can not find
the code folding in the preferences to turn it off. It must be there?

Thanks

[Geany-Users] Dark Theme Fonts

I have installed Geany on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, and the fonts 
in dark themes look aliased with a tint of green or sometimes yellow. In 
light themes, black foreground on white background, the text looks a lot 
better. It seems that GTK does not use ClearType. Is there any way to 
improve the display quality for the text layout/rendering? Everything 
else looks decent.

[Geany-Users] Page-down at start

I would like to start editing files from the terminal window, and when Geany opens it, I would like 
to use the PageDown key and/or "Find next" and Ctrl-V (paste clipboard).

When I issue "geany xxxxfile.c" (Geany already running), Geany shows the file, so far is OK.
(But there is no visible cursor yet.)

PageDown does not work.. Nothing happens.

"Find next" works, the found text is selected, but Ctrl-V does not work. (The selection is not 
replaced.)

"Down arrow" key makes the cursor appearing in the search bar.. (not in the editor window).

"Right arrow" key (among other keys) makes the cursor appearing in the editor window. (And from now, 
the PageDown and PageUp key and Ctrl-V are working too.)

[Geany-Users] Find, regex, spans lines

When I issue a Find, with regular expression like "[^Q]*Q", Geany behaves strangely: the highlight 
(the string found) spans many lines. The "[^Q]*" matches as if the lines were joined.
(The search is *not* line-based.)

Do you experience the same?
Why does geany behave like this?
How to alter this behaviour?

IIUC, you tried to install the Debian packages on Knoppix.  Even if a
distribution is Debian-based doesn't mean any Debian package will work
seamlessly on it.  Using a package not specifically crafted for your
very distribution is a risky bet if you don't know your package manager
*very* well.  It might work, but it also might not (e.g. if versions of
dependencies differ).

I also think I understood you manually installed the packages rather
than adding a repository.  This is even more tricky as your package
manager can't install dependencies itself if they are not in one of its
repositories, so you have to *manually* make sure all the specific
packages are installed.  E.g. if you manually installed
geany-plugin-scope from Debian, you need to make sure you also manually
install geany-plugins-common at the very same version, and that you have
a Geany package providing geany-abi-69.

We do.  But we cannot realistically test Geany on each and every
existing distribution, there are too many of them and there is no reason
for us to doubt Geany won't work on a GNU/Linux platform.

We would of course be happy to have report of code problems on different
platforms if any, but as Lex said, as we don't create the packages for
the various distributions we don't know what they did specifically.

Well, that's the difference between build dependencies and package
dependencies -- and here as you're talking about a specific plugin
(which is *not* part of Geany itself), of that very plugin's own
dependencies.

Geany itself only requires GTK2 (to a minimal specific version) and a
conforming libc.  However, the distribution packages generally have a
tighter dependency list, especially if the upstream package is split in
various distribution packages.  This is because not only the
distribution's packaging system has to provide the softwares but also
make sure the system state remains consistent.

We don't have such specific system: some of us use Debian, some other
Xubuntu or Fedora, etc.  But this doesn't matter much as I'm talking
about Geany developers that obviously build Geany from sources themselves.

This should avoid any packaging system issues, and building Geany is
relatively easy -- at least if you already know how to build an
Autotools-using software.

That advice is normally correct, it is usually best to use the package
provided by your distribution.  It is unfortunate if your distribution
has provided a bad package, but the Geany project has no control over
that.

The statement you quoted above is correct, Geany only needs the GTK
runtimes to run.  There is no way Geany can break packages, but your
distribution can accidentally provide bad packages at times.  That is
a concern you need to raise with the distribution to get answers, we
cannnot help you with that, we do not make the packages.

Developers test on a number of different systems, with differing
configurations, there is no specific configuration used.

Ok, note that to compile the software you will likely need development
tools and development versions of GTK, not just the runtimes.
